Ladies and Gents…Please welcome to the stage Jaderbomb! I think I need to have more introductions here don’t ya think! Today I will show you how to make painted wooden pencils. I think these are great for holidays, parties and any other special event. You can typically find wooden pencils at places like Target, Marshall’s, Ross or World Market. It’s a super easy project that adults and kids can do in minutes.
♥I will tell you that it’s a GREAT day today! It’s my son Tahner’s birthday. I truly can’t believe that he is already 15 years old. I never understood that saying “cherish the memories because time flies”…Boy do I get it now!
Since when does my cute kid choose his friends over me, ugh! I will honestly say I am most proud of my little human that I created. He emits joy, happiness and always knows how to put a smile on my face. I think I will just leave out the typical sassy mouth every
day now and then… ♥
As you know I just came back from Sanoma California this weekend. Michaels Craft Store took all of their bloggers out there to wine and dine them and let me tell you they didn’t miss out on ANYTHING! Stay tuned because I will have a blog recap of the entire trip. I can’t stress enough how amazing this trip was and the location. Follow me on Instagram to see more pictures of the fabulous trip!
I do have some other exciting things in the making that I wish I could share right now but I can’t. (Insert sad face)
The things you will need for today’s project is a pack of wooden pencils, acrylic paint and paint brush. I have done these pencils a few times before I realized that the thinner the paint the better it goes onto the pencils. Step One: Paint the end of the pencil with the color of your choice. Of course I have to stick to my roots and paint every color of the rainbow but you can paint them all one solid color.
Step Two: Carefully place them on a ledge to dry correctly. You don’t want to place them on anything they will dry and stick to. Paper is a NONO…
Step Three: TIME TO ENJOY THEM ♥
I hope you enjoyed this quirky little project. I had fun making them and I absolutely love they way they look just being displayed in my studio! Make sure to check out my post about all things PINK FLAMINGO!
