Back To School: DIY Erasers

Hi guys! Today I will be sharing with you three easy ideas on how to make your own DIY erasers for the back to school season. As always they are very easy and require little to no time. Interested! keep on reading as I show you how I choose to make these DIY erasers.

To get started you will need:

  • Eraser making kit
  • Clay tools
  • Tape
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Something to roll the “clay”

The Melon Slice

1. Start by using some popsicle sticks to create two guides to help you get an even thickness. All you need to do is to stack them together to your desired thickness, and use some tape to keep them together. Place the popsicle sticks on either side of your clay make sure both ends of your roller is sitting on the popsicle sticks. Roll out your Pink clay. Then shape it into a Triangle

2. Roll a piece of White clay in a C like shape and add it to the lower portion of your Triangle.

3. Repeat step 2 with the Green clay. Make sure to leave some White clay exposed.

4. Mix some White clay with some Green to get a lighter color.  Use that light Green clay to create some vertical stripes on the Green portion of your eraser.

5. Use some Black clay to create some seed in a tear drop shape on the Pink section.

Don’t forget to roll everything out to smooth out the surface and just like that your watermelon eraser is complete.

The Panda

1. Use a piece of paper to sketch out your panda head (feel free to print it out from the internet) cut it out.

Then cut off the ears and put them aside.

2. Use some popsicle sticks guide as we did before. Roll out some White clay and cut out the shape of the Panda head.

3. Use the Black clay and cut out the ears using the template you’ve previously placed aside and add it to the head.

4. Add the eyes.

5. Add the nose.

6. Then the mouth.

I added a Pink bow to mine but that is optional.

I also created a marble look with all my left over clay by mixing them together.

Follow the instructions from your kit to bake your erasers. Once done you have made yourself your own erasers.
