Pool Noodle Pencils by Planet Happy Smiles

I saw a yellow pool noodle and it just popped in my brain that I new I had to make it into a pencil.
So, I started to plan it out and collect materials.

What I learned:
1. I should have made my erasers a little shorter.
2. If you want a sharper tip, use "pointy" cones.
3. You can make them any length you want.
4. You can also use the colors to make map pencils or crayons!
I hope you LOVE them!  I can't wait to add one to my photo booth & hang the others.

I am in LOVE with my new book boxes!!!  I went to Walmart and I bought those ice cube bins.  I was thrilled to find enough that I needed.
Plus~ they were only $1.62 +tax per box!

I finally wrapped our cords with Washi Tape.
(I have no idea where this idea originated but it is smart!)
  Now my mom will know which ones are her cords and which ones belong to me.

  7. How fun are those noodle pencils! I love them! I've been looking at my Walmart for those bins! Alas, I can't find them. I guess that means I don't really need them right? Yours look all set and so cute though!

      We are so glad you love the pencils! I hope you find the bins! They are a standard at Walmart and they seem more durable than most of the Dollar Store bins. Have a very HAPPY week and come back soon!

    1. Hi! I found this link online but they are a little more expensive and you have to pay $5 for shipping. http://www.walmart.com/ip/UNITED-SOLUTIONS-IC0070-Ice-Bin/41240132 Keep checking the stores. They usually have them and they have carried them for years. It may be a manager in the store can place an order for you. I hope you find them! Thanks so much for stopping by! Come back soon!
