Painted Pencils

When trying to decide what to put in the goody bags for Layla's art party, I knew I wanted some sort of pencil. They are inexpensive & duh, you use them to draw! :). Usually I would grab a pack at the Dollar Tree, but I decided to try something different this time. And FREE. (Free as in, I already had everything!).

The pencils were picked up during back to school sales for very cheap. I had the acrylic paints & saran wrap as well.

We squirted each color of paint in random places in the box. (we actually had to switch boxes because the pencils were getting stuck in the middle of that box).

Then Layla dropped the pencils in and shook them!

I laid them on saran wrap to dry since they would be easy to remove if they stuck.

And there you have it! Simple, inexpensive and fun. And the possibilities are endless! You could do red & green for Christmas, black & orange for Halloween, pastels for Easter, pink & red for Valentine's Day... I just the basics since it was an art theme.

And don't forget to enter the Doodlebug Design giveaway!
