One by-product of art classes is lots of half-used pencils. I have boxes of them that are a bit too awkward to hold, but seem too long to throw away. I think I just figured out how I want to decorate our school hall next month.
1. Sharpen 10 pencils so they are all the same length.
2. Hot glue the tips together to make 5 “V”s. Let cool.
3. Arrange so that the erasers all touch each other and hot glue them together. Let cool. Flip over and glue the back joints as well to secure. I picture lots of stars hanging by string in our school hall. There may be glitter involved....
