Pencil Crafts

Updated on October 15, 2014

Pencil Craft Ideas

I don't know about you, but I love pencils. I'm talking about the old-fashioned cylinders of wood with lead (or graphite) inside, not mechanical pencils. Those things annoy me.

Wooden pencils are lovely: they feel good to hold, they are chewable (not that I chew on pencils but they give, making them desirable for people who enjoy chewing on objects), and writing with a pencil is just something I like to do.

Taking pencils to the next level with pencil crafts is even better! Take a look at the link below to see how Cathe at Just Something I Made used pencils to create this lovely pencil vase.

Use epoxy to adhere pencils

to each other for a stunning look when

creating art with pencils.

Dalton Ghetti, Pencil Artist

That house is carved from the lead on a pencil!

Oh man! The master pencil artist just might be Dalton Ghetti. He uses a sewing needle and a small blade to carve into the wood and lead of pencils to create small (oh so small!) works of art. They are lovely!

Read his full biography to get the entire picture of this fabulous pencil art.

To accumulate enough pencils for pencil crafts,

ask family and friends to keep their old pencils for you.

For small wall hangings,

instead of using a dowel rod, consider using pencils.
