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
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!
