Pencil Idea

By on May 30, 2011

This pencil idea may not be for everyone but I thought it was quite witty. Make a cylinder about 5cm shorter than the bottle from light cardboard and join the sides with tape. Draw a third section of a circle- about 7.5cm radius, onto a light colored cardboard and cut it out. Roll it into a cone shape, running the flat side of a pair of scissors along it to help it curl. Tape it in place. Make a smaller cone for the lead of the pencil and glue it onto the larger cone. Run a length of sticky tape along the inside of the cone to hold it all in position. Fit the pencil over the bottle and secure with two strips of tape across the bottom.
