DIY Project Instructions

Instructions from the Blogger

  1. Use the tape on your pencils and cover the places that you do not want to paint.

  2. Start painting the rest of the pencil and let it dry.

  3. In a plastic bowl mix the white glue with water (1:1) and apply it on the pencils.

  4. Spread the stardust on the pencil and let it dry. If you wish to have more than one color, just use more colors of the glitter.

Years ago when I taught elementary school, this would have been great to know. I spent a small fortune on those specialty gifts to give to my students during birthdays and Christmas. This is a great way to save a few bucks and still give a great gift.

What a cute way to glam up some plain pencils. I am wondering if it would be a good idea to add a sealant of some kind to help the glue remain on the pencil?
