Fun Fun Fun... I made these simple little pencil toppers just for fun, and then my 5 year old Gracie thought they would be great teacher gifts... and she's right! So here's the real quick how to... not that you need it :) Make a paper template that's just the style of triangle you think looks good! Then pin it to a double layer of felt. Sew around it on a sewing machine being careful not to sew on the paper... just around the outer edges. Leave the bottom middle open for stuffing and inserting the pencil. Clip the tree out with pinking sheers. Stuff it with poly fil and embelish it! I used sequins, silver beads, and I even embroidered on one of them! I added a felt star on one tree, and a few bows on the other two. Finally, I put a pencil in the bottom opening and whip stitched the hole closed. These plain wood pencils are pretty easy to find if you are looking for them, and they are cheap too! Wrap them in a cello bag, add a ribbon or a tag and have some fun with them! If you have any questions or you are new to crafting and need help, fell free to drop me a line! If you make your own, share a pic! That would be great! And if you don't craft and you want some... well you are in luck! I have them on Glitter and Grunge for $6 for a set of 3 and that includes shipping!
