A Craft: Doll Sized Coloring Pencils(And the Winning Name)!

Hope here! So, do you remember my post I did last week? It was Name that Doll! Before I say the winning name, here is a review of what the options were(beside them will be the number of votes they got):

 1. Kylie- 5 votes
2. Isabel- 0 votes
3. Kristina- 1 vote
4. Diana- 0 votes
5. Lori- 2 votes
6. Emerald- 1 vote

As you all can probably tell from the results above, the name Kylie won! If I was going to vote for this, I would vote for Kylie or Lori. I hope you enjoyed that game! Should I do more games? Now that the results are said, let's get to what this post is mostly about. 

This post will be a craft! I am going to show you all how to make doll sized colored pencils(or regular pencils)! This craft is inspired by American Girl Fans post on how to make a #2 pencil. You can see that post here. 

What you'll need is:
  • Toothpicks(as many as you want. 1 toothpick makes 2 pencils)
  • Scissors
  • Sharpies(Any colors you want to use) 
First, you will need to use your pair of scissors and cut the toothpick(s) in half. Try to cut them as close to half as you can!

 They should look similar to this.

 Take your colored Sharpie and color your toothpick handle.

  Color the tip of the "pencil". Let a space in between the handle and the tip to make it look like a real colored pencil. LET THE PENCIL(S) DRY BEFORE YOUR DOLLS HOLD IT! IF THEY HOLD IT WHEN IT IS WET, IT WILL LEAVE A MARK!!!

 There you go! You just made colored pencils for your dolls! How did you like this? Please let me know in the comments. If you make some for your dolls, send me the photos at hopie.harman@gmail.com! Please say your name and a description(if you would like). 

 (Here is an extra photo of Emily drawing with her colored pencils!)

Thanks for reading and happy crafting!
