Having fun with your children and getting them ready for school can be just so much cooler with these Crafty T Shirt Wrapped pencils added to their backpacks. An activity that takes only a few supplies and is as simple as One, Two, Three.
Tie Dyed T Shirt Strips
Scissors & Needle tool
Apply Supertape™ to the bottom edge of pencil as shown in photograph. Open T Shirt strip and press flat against the pencil. Add additional piece of tape over the T Shirt strip and wrap strips over and around flattened portion. Add additional tape and continue wrapping until you reach the top of the pencil. Note: do not cover the eraser portion of the pencil.
Wrap the T Shirt strip around the pencil top, tie a knot and trim leaving only ¼” remaining.
Add a drop of glue to the freshly cut T Shirt end piece. Use the needle tool to tuck the end in between the rows of wrapping. Voila you are finished!
