diy fruit pencils

ok guys. 
we are pretty much almost done with summer.
and school is here or for some, just around the corner.

so what to do in the craft department?
start on the next holiday?
which just so happens to be labor day, 
or as i have seen, halloween.

good gracious why oh why are some people already blogging about witches and ghosts?
i just don't get it. 
and what's worse is my birthday is on halloween.
oh well, i will save the witches and ghosts 
for at least a few weeks here.

 so for now we are on summer/school mode with these:
 i think i have pencils on the mind ever since i made those pencil pretzels a few weeks back.

anyway it's a pretty easy craft that is done 
by following the next steps.
i got these glitter pencils at target's 
dollar spot awhile back.
but i'm sure you can get plain colored pencils wherever office supplies are sold, 
especially now with all the school stuff on sale.

ok here we go.

electrical tape is awesome. 
it sticks and stretches every which way.
you can find colored electrical tape at the hardware section of walmart.
this way you can still use the eraser.
all done with your fruit salad pencils :)

so there you have summer school pencils.
err, not summer school, but summer/school.
or is it school summer pencils?

i'm confused.
good thing school starts so the learning can begin again.
