With just about a week left before school officially starts here, I thought it would be super fun to share a DIY craft project for back-to-school. What better way to get excited to take notes than by using your own custom pencils? This tutorial is super fun and easy to do.

There are so many uses for washi tape. I use it for everything and so doesn’t my daughter! These washi tape pencils were so fun to make and definitely the perfect rainy weekend project! If you want to use the exact washi tape we used (pictured below), check out the link. ⤸
What You’ll Need
- Pack of Pencils
- Acrylic Paint
- Paint Brushes or Sponges
- Washi Tape Rolls
- Mod Podge (Matte Finish)
- Paint Pen
- Binder Clips
1. Start by painting your pencils in any color you desire. We found that our pencils needed 2 coats *Make sure you let the first coat dry completely before applying the second coat. We used binder clips to hold them upright while they dried.
