Today we will use pencil waste to make a flower craft. Pencil waste, WHAAT ?!
We bet you always dispose the waste after pencil sharpening and never use it for creating awesome crafts, huh? Well, never throw it away again as it can be used for creative projects. This one is a sweet spring craft idea for kids to make.
All colors will look great!
Combine your project with other recycled materials – like sequins from old clothes (or other materials).
How to Make Flowers Pencil Shaving Art
What you need:
- different color pencils (we recommend you to use elastic pencils for this project because their shavings do not crack easily)
- color pencils (green, yellow and blue)
- black liner
- small pieces of cardstock
- beads – optional
Step by Step Instructions
Take your sharpener and start making circle pencil shavings.
You can make a few circles for one flower. Go nice and slow.
Make a few flowers using different colored pencils.
Apply some glue on the bottom of the cardstock.
Attach the beads and wait until the glue is set. You can use a variety of other materials or just draw the grass.
Put some glue on two flowers and place them on the paper.
Wait for the glue to dry.
Using the black liner, marker or a pencil, draw a stem and leaves.
Color the stem and the leaves with a green color pencil.
Draw and color some tiny buzzers around the flowers. They will add to the spring atmosphere for sure.
