Sparkle Top Pencils Contributor post by Penelope and Pip.

This could be the easiest DIY you’ll ever do, and the results are full of sparkly goodness.

Let’s get started with materials: 1. Sequins with a flat base you’ll find them at art stores and haberdasheries) 2. Wooden pencils with a flat top 3. Craft glue In just two easy steps, you’re minutes away from some serious colleague envy at your cute pencils.

STEP 1: Put a dab of craft glue on the end of your pencil. STEP 2: Carefully place your sequin down on top of the glue, wipe any excess away and leave to dry. Now just keep adding glue and adding sequins! This would be a very easy back to school project for the kids as well that would make them the envy of the classmates when they return from summer holidays. These little sparkly pencils gems will really brighten up your desk and make you smile.
