Pencil Top Critter Craft

Decorate your pencils using these simple suggestions.

Materials Needed:

  • Pencils
  • Chenille Stems
  • Pom-poms
  • Wiggle Eyes
  • Glue

Instructions:
Cut a chenille stem in half (when cutting chenille stems, use a finger nail clipper or old scissors). Wrap one end of the chenille stem around the eraser end of the pencil so it looks like a spiral. Leave about 1-inch of one end of the chenille stem poking up above the eraser; place a dab of glue on this end and poke a pom-pom onto it.

Now you have the base for your creature. Add the wiggle eyes to the pom-pom so it looks like a little critter. You can also add arms and/or legs by using chenille stems. If you have scrap pieces of felt you can give your critter a nose, mouth, ears, and whatever else you can dream up!
