DIY Color Blocked Pencils

We love back-to-school time.  It’s always sad to see summer end, but fall makes up for it with some of our favorite things:  fun school supplies!  Over at The Crafted Life, Rachel used a simple color blocking technique to dress up plain pencils.  You don’t have to be a kid to appreciate this project – even adults need some fun office supplies every once in a while!  Who wants a boring cup of regular ol’ pencils when you could quickly, easily, and cheaply whip up a set with some personality?   [how to make color blocked pencils]
