DIY Giant Pencil

These giant pencils make great decoration, gift holders, or simply a dressed up can of chips! No matter what they are for, my kids think they are pretty amazing, and loved to help make them too.

What you need:
  • Pringles can (or the like), lid included
  • 7” x 10” yellow construction paper
  • 1.5” x 10” pink construction paper
  • 1” x 10” black/grey construction paper
  • 1 circle of cream construction paper, with 1 cut to the middle
  • Hot glue gun + extra glue sticks
  • 1 Black marker
  • something fun to put inside!

HERE is a quick video of how I made these. 
Things to remember:
  • Put the yellow paper at the top of the can, and the pink at the bottom of the can.
  • The bigger the circle of cream paper, the taller the pencil point will be.
  • Kids can help with coloring the “lead” at the point. More advanced kids can use the glue gun with your help.
  • You can give these to your kids as a back-to-school treat OR make them for as Teacher Gifts, filled with goodies like gift cards, pencils, markers, etc!
