1 Oct

polish a pencil

We purchased these pencils for less than a penny each at the Staples back to school sale!

Materials: 

  1. Wooden Pencil
  2. Nail Polish
  3. Nail gems

 Directions: 

  1. Coat a pencil with nail polish. 
  2. Let it dry and recoat.
  3. Place small nail gems around the top of pencil.
  4. Paint metal banding with a complimentary color.

*TIP:  We stood the pencil in a Styrofoam block so that we could paint all sides at once.  Clay or play dough could also be used  to hold the pencil upright.
