Nothing says lovin’ like office supplies. Can I get an amen?!

Okay – so maybe I’m the only one who thinks this way, but I’m sure we can all agree that a day with new office supplies is an awesome day. So why not make them the new “it” V-day gift!

This “tutorial” is really not a tutorial at all – just a look at something I’ve been doing for years to create jazzy pencils to because colorful pencils look way prettier on your desk. It’s a fact. Here’s how I do it:

I particulartly love Rustoleum 2x Painter’s Touch spray paint because you only need one coat. It’s quick and easy. It also comes in a ton of colors so creating this ombre collection was easy to do.

  1. Wrap the metal end and eraser with painter’s tape
  2. With the pointed end, place the pencil into the styrofoam block
  3. With about 1″ of the pencil in the styrofoam, the pencils will now stand on their own making it easy for you to spray paint them and allow them to dry completely. Easy! Almost too easy.

These pencils are the perfect addition to a simple valentine’s themed stationery set filled with pink and red paper supplies and packaging items.

  1. Easy Ombre Valentine Pencils are a fun and easy way to make your pencils stand out this Valentine’s Day. They are also a fun craft for kids to do with their parents or grandparents. The Valentine pencils are made by taking a regular pencil and using a food coloring marker to draw on the first half of the pencil. The second half of the pencil is then painted with regular white paint. The ombre effect is achieved by using a paint brush with different sized bristles to create different shades of color. I have also found a great post to read that will help me to find the best online games playing platform where I can enjoy my time.

  2. I wanted to make my coworkers a straightforward (and inexpensive) homemade treat for Valentine’s Day. I made these Valentine’s Day Ombre Pencils after remembering that I had a package of pencils that I had purchased from the dollar shop and decorating them with some materials I already had in my craft supply. That was so fun and cute, we even played games that I also found on this review website  Thank you for you great idea!
