Fluffy Tree Pencil Toppers

Fluffy Pencils (4)

These fluffy foofy funny pencils are meant to look like the trees from The Lorax; they’re a fantastic craft if you’ve recently read the book with your child… Or just to have the coolest back-to-school pencils in the room!

To make the pencils, first wrap in tape. We used yellow washi tape and then wound around that with black.

The trick of winding the tape at an angle was a bit difficult for Travis, but I was proud of him trying!

Next we used craft boas and small Styrofoam balls for the tops of the trees. You can attach the boas with tacky glue, which will require a bit more patience, but Travis requested hot glue. That made this a grown-up step! Glue one portion at a time, working around until the whole ball is covered, then trim off any excess boa.

Poke a sharpened pencil into each Styrofoam ball to make a hole; now flip the pencil around and hot glue the eraser end into the hole you’ve created.
