    I discovered I didn’t like this charm as much and made a pencil this way:
    1.Twist a black band four times around the hook.
    2.Twist a white (or tan–this needs to represent wood) band two times in your hand, then pull it through the black band on the hook (if you have done PG Loomacy, chances are you will have done this: poodle legs, action figure arms, etc)
    3. Now place it on the loom.
    4.Place TWO white bands on top, then TWO yellows.
    5. Pull over the whites, add TWO yellows, etc, ect.
    6. Once you feel your pencil is long enough, add on a TWO silver bands.
    7. Once you have added your silver bands, then pulled over remaining yellow bands, add TWO pink rubber bands.
    8.Add two more pairs of pink rubber bands,
    9.After you placed all the pinks, place ONE (I repeat, ONE) black band. After this, PLACE NO MORE on the loom.
    10. Pull over the last pinks.
    11. When you get down to only the black band, pull it off the loom with your hook (make sure it’s securely on there) and make a slip knot.

    This is basically a double-band fishtail with a few additions to fit my need for the lead and making the slip knot at the top. If you tried this, please let me know in the comments below!

    I did try this, and that’s actually a good idea! Because then you can ware a PENCIL NECKLACE instead of a NECKLACE WITH A PENCIL CHARM. So, good idea and it works, so don’t think you’ll end up with a pile of rubber bands!!
