ETCETERAS: Anthropologie Inspired Pencils

Anthropologie Inspired Pencils via homework | carolynshomework.comWith spring around the corner, I’m finding myself drawn to bright colors. It’s like going from Kansas to Oz. Suddenly, all my white on white d├ęcor needs splashes of bright blooms and other colorful accents.

Anthropologie Inspired Pencils via homework | carolynshomework.comI was browsing through the Anthropologie site and found some bright and cheerful pencils that I knew I could make myself. A jar of colorful pencils would be a perfect way to bring a bit of happy to my desk!

Anthropologie Inspired Pencils via homework | carolynshomework.comTo make these pencils, simply cut a piece of tissue paper about 2 inches longer than your pencil. Roll the tissue paper around your pencil and adhere with Mod Podge or glue.
