Hello and welcome to Teach Me Tuesday! One of my bloggy buddies is here today to share a darling craft for the kiddos that’s perfect for fall. Let’s check out how Bethany makes an adorable Pumpkin Pencil Topper!
To make your own pencil topper, you’ll need to gather a few easy-to-find supplies. (You may even already have all the supplies on hand!)
You’ll need orange pom poms, a small piece of green fabric, a pencil, and a brown pipe cleaner. If you’d like for your pumpkin to be a jack-o-lantern, you’ll need puff paint as well. For each pencil topper, you will need one pom pom, a small piece of pipe cleaner, and a leaf shape cut from your fabric.
To make sure that you don’t have any sharp wire edges on your pipe cleaner, cut a section double the size you want and fold the piece in half. The folded end will be the top of your stem. Use hot glue to assemble your pumpkin. First glue the leaf on the top center of your orange pom pom, and then glue the stem to that.
Once your pumpkin is assembled, remove the eraser from a pencil. Use hot glue to attach your pumpkin to the top of your pencil. Voila! You now have a fun fall pencil!
You can use small pom poms or large pom poms like I did to create different size pumpkins.
And because these are so easy to make, you can craft several of them to give to friends and family. Or maybe craft yourself a whole pumpkin patch of pencils! If you like this craft, I hope you’ll stop by Pitter and Glink sometime to check out my other projects. Happy fall!
