Back to School Glittering Sign
August is here and that brings with it all the fun of back to school. Back to school shopping, prepping, and crafting is a MUST! This week we want to share with you a pencil craft sure to get you in the back to school spirit. This is a great gift for teachers, for home decorating, or just for crafting fun.
We used glitters to make a pencil sign that could be used as a door hanging, set on a mantel, or hung on a wall. But don't stop the pencil fun with just a wall sign. Use these pencil colored glitters to make all sorts of pencil inspired things like tumblers, staplers, and more!

Step 2: Create
Dip the brush into Mod Podge and apply a generous, even layer to the pencil, working in only one section at a time.
Sprinkle glitter onto Mod Podged area.
Allow Mod Podge to dry
Add a second layer, if needed, by applying Mod Podge over glittered area and sprinkling glitter onto Mod Podge
Remove any tape added from completed section and allow to dry
Repeat above steps for each section of the pencil to get your overall desired look
Step 3: Get Crafty
Once dried add a layer of Triple-Thick Clear Glaze or Epoxy / Resin to “seal” in all the glittery goodness
