Introduction: 3 Things You Can Make From Pencil Sharpeners & Pegs

About: Innovative Projects, Diy's, Life Hacks

Some time ago, I bought a packet of 8 pencil sharpeners. I could have bought a packet of 2 or 4, but the price was almost the same. (8 x Sharpeners for €0.75/$0.82)

I was ready to pay a few cents more for a packet of 8 as pencil sharpeners have blades that can be used for various DIY projects.

If you have extra pencil sharpeners lying around, perhaps you can use them to make another tool.

I also used wooden pegs/clothespins for this project.

If you are Interested in the video version of this Instructable and the embedded video does not appear on your mobile device, here is an alternative link

Step 1: Cable/Wire Stripper

I took off the blade and attached it to a wooden peg/clothespin.

Now your peg can strip wires/cables.

Step 2: Stencil Knife

I removed the blade and took apart the peg.

Step 3: Stencil Knife

I glued the blade between the wooden pieces.

We have made a small stencil knife.

Step 4: Scraper

After removing the blade and taking apart the peg, I made a cut in the wooden piece.

Then I applied some glue to the blade and put it in the cut.

We have made a small scraper.

I was intrigued by the title, since I didn't know what you meant by "pegs." These are clothes pins in my part of the U.S. Great ideas for little things that are normally considered good for only one use.

Good ideas, especially the cable stripper, BUT.... in Step 4, photo in upper right, Put both hands on the little blade and push it into the wood. DO NOT CUT TOWARD YOUR FINGER!
