72 Pencils

While on vacation last week I made my usual trip(s) to the dollar store and of course came back with a bag full of goodies.  I had seen this somewhere on the internet and wanted to give it a try and with 72 pencils, a bag of rubberbands, and some crazy glue (and peace and quiet), I did it!

It's a little clumsy at first, but then you get the hang of it adding the pencils in between the rubber bands.  Here is the link to directions should you want to give it a try:

Before crazy glue, with rubberbands still in place.

 Back to work today and going to put this on my desk with the sign:  No school pencils were harmed in this project.  I think I might use it to hold my rubberband ball that's been growing larger for the last 9 years!


  1. :) I love this! And I am probably going to have to try to do this . . . not sure if I have the patience, but it looks fun. What a great idea to hold your rubber band ball (9 years! . . . I think I have only been working on mine for about 5) Have a great week! You made Monday morning a little better this week. :)


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
