DIY Miniature Colored Pencils

DIY Miniature Colored Pencils 3Last 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.

Craft Tips

*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.
