I can’t believe I’m even writing this post because I’M SO NOT READY, but school is around the corner. Our new school in Dallas begins their school year on August 15th! What?! Didn’t summer just start?
Today I’m sharing how to make these fun DIY Colored Pencil Orbs. They are a perfect craft to get your kids excited for school or a fantastic back to school gift for teachers. Wouldn’t they look cute on a teacher’s desk?!
Here’s how you make them:
FloraCraft Foam Ball (6 inches)
100 Count Crayola Colored Pencils
Yellow Acrylic Paint
Paint your FloraCraft Foam Ball yellow with your paint brush and let dry. I coated my styrofoam ball twice.
Break all the 100 Count Crayola Colored Pencils at the tip. I broke the first two inches of the colored pencil. I kept one broken pencil nearby to serve as a template for all the others. I also used needle nose pliers to help me break the pencils.
Start sticking the broken colored pencils into your painted styrofoam ball. Stick all (broken) 100 Crayola Colored Pencils into your painted styrofoam ball.
