Introduction: Back to School Style Pencils (or Pens)

About: I am 5 foot 1, I have blond hair and I am really thin!

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



Step 1: Supplies

You will need:

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.
