    I was browsing a slovak Etsy equivalent and found this.

    So I went to recreate this for christmas gifts for women in my life. I used a universal glue - Pattex Fix Super ( Only glue I had home). Its in a tube so I just inserted the pencils individually into the tube then smeared the glue evenly on each one and put the crayons together. Then sawed off sections and rasped and sanded some. I want to finish them with CA glue and stick some eye screws into them and boom.

    What a great idea. I could see this as being a great gift for a teacher or an artist. And not too difficult to make.
