Last Wednesday I mentioned I would be re-posting my miniature colored pencil tutorial. It was originally posted in 2011. I can’t believe it has been that long?! Since it has been a while, I made a new batch of mini colored pencils and took some new photos.
This is a great craft for kids and doesn’t take much time to make. The little pencils can also be used for cards, scrapbooking, collages, etc.
DIY Miniature Colored Pencil Tutorial
Colored markers – various colors
*Be careful when cutting the toothpick. The other half shoots into the air if you don’t hold it.
*Sand in one direction to keep the wood from splitting.
*Have a piece of paper under your toothpick when coloring it. Some of the marker will rub off until it dries.
