Pencils get the creative juices flowing for many artists. Some create beautiful works of art with pencils but, for others, the pencils themselves are the objects of art. I hope you enjoy this list of ten very creative and very unique pencil designs!
1. Gavel Pencil – My dad is a lawyer and he brought some of these home from the office for me when I was a kid. I thought they were the coolest thing in the world. Plus, I made a lot of mistakes (especially in math) so having two erasers was the best.
8. Pencil Dice – Just like a traditional six-sided die, but in pencil form! These handy pencils can be used to write, draw, play games, and make decisions when a coin flip just won’t do! (Hint: You can make one yourself with any six-sided pencil and a Sharpie)
9. Clothespin Pencil – Despite starting off this list with three of my long-time favorite unique pencil designs, I have to say this one may be my current favorite. It’s silly, fun, and definitely creative. Plus, it’s a great way to put that awkwardly-sized bit of broken graphite to use!
10. Personalized Pencil – What could be more unique than a pencil that comes from your very own brain? Better still, you can design your own right here at Pencils.com!
I’ve gone on at length about my favorite pencils, and now I want to hear about yours! Tell me in the comments, and share any other unique pencil designs that didn’t make the list.
