Introduction: Back to School Style Pencils (or Pens)

My mom used to make these all the time when she was my age! They give your pencils (or pens) a funky finish!

THANX FOR LOOKING!

PEACE!!!

Step 1: Supplies

You will need:

String
Pencil or pen
As many colors of string as you wish
Glue gun
And about 30-45 minutes of your time

Step 2: The String

On the end of your pencil (A.K.A. right above the eraser) wrap the string around your pencil. I did mine in thirds.

Step 3: Glue Gun

Once you're done, take the glue gun (make sure its warmed up) and put a teeny weensy drop of glue on the end of the rope, as it shows in the picture

Step 4: Finish It Off

Just wrap around you're string in the colors of the rainbow and do the glue gun step again.

AND YOU'RE DONE!

another cool thing to do is to take pens with the cap that has like a dent at the top and hot glue strings there
