Pencil Bulletin Board

After making my crayon bulletin board freebie, I got an idea to try making pencils instead of crayons. The result...I love them EVEN more. I made a similar bulletin board set only with a pencil theme to save busy teachers time. The letters are included so you can just print those out. The pencils are easy enough for students to make, or you can prep them all before school starts if you want. A quick and easy Pencil Bulletin Board to save busy teachers time and money - that's a win!

Print out the pencil templates on cardstock for durability. Using a black marker have students color in the tip and write their name. Depending on how you are coloring the pencil, you can write names at the end. The sharpie looked much better when I wrote it after I let the paint dry.

Using the Kwik Stix, paint the pencil, eraser and silver band. Let it dry before trying to cut and assemble. This takes less than a minute with Kwik Stix.

Roll the pencil up, and staple on the back. This will be hidden on a bulletin board, but if you'd prefer, you can use tape or glue.

Write the name on the pencil, if you didn't already. Now your super cute pencils are ready to go. These would make great placeholders for awesome student work if you have a board or wall big enough for every student to have a pencil with space underneath for displaying work.

The letters spelling out "We Are A Sharp Bunch" come with one letter per page. This would make the bulletin board huge, if you have that space or if you want to spread it out in the hallway or something. If you want smaller letters try this pro tip. In Adobe when you have the PDF opened, go to print and then click multiple. From there you can decide how many letters you want it to print to the page. I did six on a page and had it put lines around each one to make cutting the rectangles much easier. I used extra rectangles to add a pop of color behind each letter. Hang with the pencils and you are good to go.
