DIY Gold Personalized Pencils

Gold Personalized Pencils

It’s been a few weeks since I posted a new blog post but I am back with a vengeance. Those of you who read my blog regularly or read my About page know that I also a co-founder of a startup so it can get pretty hectic. It’s almost back-to-school time and even if you’re not going back-to-school, my newest DIY post can be used to glam up your desk at the office.

When I was younger, one of my favourite things about back-to-school was heading to the store to buy new school supplies (a girl could never have enough sparkly pens and pencils). I thought, how fun would it be to take boring HB 2 pencils and glam them up?! In addition, why not empower yourself with some encouraging messages to get you through the day.

These pencils are so easy to make and they’re super pretty, so grab your HB 2 pencils and some spray paint and let’s get painting!

Gold Personalized Pencils - Step 1

1. Before you start spray painting, grab your HB 2 pencils and mask off the eraser so you don’t get spray paint on it.

2. In a well ventilated area or outside, grab your spray paint and paint your pencils. Let the pencils dry completely.
