Everyone loves pencils.

A fun way to recycle all those pencils that are to short to be usable.

Instructions

  1. How to make a keyring. Pencil Keychain - Step 1 1

    First you need a bit of old pencil (colored is pretty) that can be any size depending on your taste. If you don't have an old bit you can chop a bit off a normal sized pencil and sharpen the edge.

  2. How to make a keyring. Pencil Keychain - Step 2 2

    Now you need to create a little hole in the pencil lead at the top. You can use a needle or pin and just keep scraping.

  3. How to make a keyring. Pencil Keychain - Step 3 3

    Now you need a little piece of wire with a hook at the end. Sorry that the picture is so small but it looks like a number 9 made of wire.

  4. How to make a keyring. Pencil Keychain - Step 4 4

    Super glue the wire into the hole you created previously.




  5. How to make a keyring. Pencil Keychain - Step 5 5

    While the glue is drying you can make the key chain part. I used a chain but you can use string, ribbon, beads, buttons or anything you can think of.

  6. How to make a keyring. Pencil Keychain - Step 6 6

    Use a link to join the key chain to the loop of wire, which by now is stuck inside the pencil.

  7. 7

    There you have it, a pencil key chain!
    If you want you can make a necklace, m a pencil charm bracelet in different colors, maybe even earrings. The possibilities are endless :)
