Back To School Craft: Pretty Pencils

For us, school is only 4 weeks away and my kids are chomping at the bit to go.  I’m lucky, my kids are young and still think school is fun.  We went shopping for school supplies today and my daughter was so excited you seriouly would have thought I had taken her to Disneyworld.  I want to keep that momentum going throughout the month of August so I thought I would try to find some back to school related crafts to do with the girls.  This is the first one I think we are going to tackle.  These pencils are a cute way to personalize a pack of inexpensive pencils.  My daughter will be in heaven just picking out the cute paper.  I think we might even write on some of the paper before we seal it on, just to make it even more their own.  Thanks Omiyage Blogs!

Here’s what you need to make these:

  • pencils, preferably round
  • paper of your choice
  • Mod Podge (we used Matte)
  • a craft paintbrush
