1. Get a Q-tip. One with the white stick, not the blue stick. The white stick is solid made of rolled laminate paper. The blue sticks are hollow, they are for making scopes and flashlights and such.

2. Cut off the cotton tips. Cut the remaining stick in two.

3. Throw the cotton tips away. Now you've got two sticks to work with.

4. Whittle the end of the stick to a point.

5. Paint the stick yellow. Paint the pointed tip black and the other end pink. Paint a black band beside the pink.

6. Paint the tapered part wood tan. Paint over the ferrule with silver. I just wanted you to know i knew the word ferrule.

Voila! You got a pencil!

You can also use round toothpicks, and skip the wittling and tan-painting steps :)
