The one with the polka dot pencils DIY



What you'll need:
  • pencils
  • nailpolish (I used four shades for each pencil)


I don't know if the name DIY is on order for this little project. It's super simple and most of the time you need to make these, is for letting the pencils dry. I used four shades of polish for each pencil, starting with the darkest shade. Open all of the bottles you'll need for one pencil before starting. Apply dots of polish, starting at the end of the pencil with the darkest shade. Work inwards and end with the lightest colour. 




I made this nifty little pencil dry-thingy with rolls of tape, no need to hold them until the nailpolish has dried!



Let them dry for a couple of minutes, and you're done!

  6. Those look so cute!! I guess if you don't have white pencils you can just paint them white first or use spray paint.

  12. Very cute! I really like your idea to use ribbon to hold the pencil upright for drying! Now I just wish I had more than two colors of nail polish.
