monster pencil toppersWhat you need:

  • 1 pencil
  • 1 removable pencil eraser
  • 1 hot glue gun and glue
  • 1 (1-inch) pom pom
  • 1 pipe cleaner
  • 1 pair of scissors
  • Googly eye(s)

What to do:

  • Place a removable pencil eraser on a pencil.
  • Using a low-temperature hot glue gun, apply glue to one side of removable pencil eraser.
  • Quickly press and hold on center of 1-inch pom pom.
  • Cut pipe cleaner into two pieces, each about 2 inches in length.
  • Curl the ends of both pipe cleaner pieces with your fingers.
  • Glue the straight ends of pipe cleaner pieces to the pom pom above the removable eraser.
  • Flip over the pencil topper to glue the eye(s) onto the monster.

BE CAREFUL: Ask a parent or older sibling to help with the hot glue gun. Even if it’s on the low-temperature setting, the glue can still burn you!
