Summer seems to go by faster and faster each year. This year is no exception, and I am already thinking about Back to School. Here's a fun Back to School garland we made by making pencils from paint samples. It's super easy and so fun to make!
Here's what you need:
Here's what you do:
Cut the lighter end of the paint samples to a point.
Cut black triangles and adhere to the point of the pencil with Craft Glue Dots. Cut a grey rectangles and a pink squares and adhere them together with Craft Glue Dots to create the eraser end of each pencil. Then use Craft Glue Dots to adhere the 'eraser' you just made to the end of the paint sample that is still square.
Punch holes on each pencil and thread the twine or string through to hang them up as garland.I love that this is perfect for those Back-to-School and First Day of School pictures that we all love to take. It's also fun to hang up as the end of summer nears and helps get everyone excited to be going Back to School shopping and gearing up for school!
Hi! I’m Robyn and blog over at Create it. Go! I live in beautiful Northwest Arkansas and love being outside. I’m a mom to five fun, crazy kiddos that I love, ranging in age from 16 down to 4. And I’m a wife to a man that I love laughing wtih! I love to create. I love papercrafting, working with wood, upcycles, repuposes, and DIY’s, crafting anything in general, trying out new recipes, sewing, photography, you name it! I also like to pick up a good book and ignore those dishes and laundry that never seem to go away. haha My life is never boring and can almost always use some re-balancing and simplifying. It’s not perfect, but I love it!
