I know I am terrible, but I just cannot resist taking the odd handful (or two) of those small pencils they have everywhere in Ikea! But what on earth do I do with them when I get them home? There are only so many pencils you can write/draw with!!!So I challenged myself, and came up with these coasters!!!
I am under no illusions that they will very last long, they are just a bit of fun. I simply glued them together using a cement type glue, perhaps if I did them again I would use E6000, which I think would make them stronger.
I am now thinking, that they might also look quite good stuck round a desk pencil pot (dare I return to Ikea?) ….. however a set of short Poundshop coloured pencils could look equally as good ……. hmmmmmm
Just found out someone has already had that idea!! http://gadgetsin.com/diy-your-own-pencil-holder.htm
