We shall call him "Silly Heart Pencil Topper" - k?

step by step directions for pencil topper, valentine pencil craft, kid craft


To create: 
1.  I had my daughter use the craft coloring sheet from the Silly Hearts collection & colored in one of the hearts & cut it out
2.  take pipe cleaner & twist in knot at top of a pencil
3. continue wrapping the pipe cleaner around another pencil to create the 'twisted' effect
4.  repeat on other side until you get the 'antennae' look
5. cut a heart shape out of the pattern paper from the Silly Hearts collection, 6.  fold vertically in 1/2
7. snip 2 cuts on the fold  - one about an inch down from the top & the other an inch from bottom - both about 1/2 in.
8. insert pencil w/ antennae in the 2 holes snipped
9.  glue on sides of heart from step 1 & adhere to the heart w/ the pencil in it (don't glue entire backside of silly face heart - so it allows you to remove pencil)
