We are featuring another craft from THE BOY PROJECT (Notes and Observations of Kara McAllister), a humorous middle grade novel from Scholastic, that was released January 1! In honor of the book’s release, we are featuring some of the crafts Kara mentions in the book on this blog. Kami Kinard, the book’s author, is the mother of CLM, this blog’s creator. Pedicured Pencils was one of our earlier posts. Kami liked the idea so much that she included it in her book! Click on the book in the sidebar to learn more about it!
We purchased these pencils for less than a penny each at the Staples back to school sale!
- Wooden Pencil
- Nail Polish
- Nail gems
- Coat a pencil with nail polish.
- Let it dry and recoat.
- Place small nail gems around the top of pencil.
- 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.
