Almost the end of the school holidays, here is another little pencil case to make, to keep your pencils in, before you go.
Pencil, Foam

Foam Pencil Toppers

By: Amanda Formaro

Difficulty: Very Easy

Age: 6 and up

What you'll need:

  • Craft foam sheets or shapes
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Pom-poms
  • Pencils

How to make it:

    1. http://crafts.kaboose.com/img/craft_images/pencil-foam-toppers-school-photo-350x255-aformaro-img_9840.jpg

    2. Start with two identical sized shapes, such as a circle or heart. Put glue around the border of one of the shapes, leaving about ¾" where you will insert the pencil. (See photo.)
Press the second shape onto the first, sandwiching them together. The glue will need to dry for several hours, preferably overnight, but you can decorate the outside now.
    1. http://crafts.kaboose.com/img/craft_images/pencil-foam-toppers-school-photo-350x255-aformaro-img_9842.jpgDecorate the outside of the craft foam shape using pom-poms, wiggle eyes, other foam shapes, glitter glue, sequins, whatever you like. We made a black bear using pom-poms for ears and a nose and a couple of wiggle eyes. (See photo.)

    1. http://crafts.kaboose.com/img/craft_images/pencil-foam-toppers-school-photo-350x255-aformaro-img_9841.jpgWe also made a flower using several pom-poms and a bird using wiggle eyes and other craft foam shapes. (See photo.)
    2. Once the toppers have dried completely, insert the eraser end of a pencil carefully into the opening.


    1. Drying time is important for this project. If you try to insert the pencil too soon, the glue may still be tacky and could pull away from the foam causing your topper to split open.
    2. You can use white craft glue as we did, or you can purchase special glue made just for craft foam at a craft supply store.
Craft foam comes in convenient value packs in various shapes, sizes, and colours.
