Easter Pencil Toppers

By March 18, 2013 March 8th, 2017 No Comments

These Easter Pencil Toppers are an easy and fun craft for kids to make and give to friends and school mates for Easter! Thanks for the idea Busy Bee Kids Crafts!!

 

Here’s what you’ll need…

• Pencil(s)
• Pipe cleaners
Carrot– 1 orange and 1 green
Bunny– 2 white
Chick– 1 Orange and 1 yellow
• Wire cutters or kitchen scissors
• Google eyes (for bunny and chick)
• Small piece of pink paper or felt and cotton ball (for bunny) 

Here’s how you make them…

Carrot Pencil Topper

1. Place the middle of your green pipe cleaner on your pencil, just below the eraser. Wrap the pipe cleaner around a couple of times. 

 

 

2. With the loose ends make two long loops. Make sure the ends of your loops are below the eraser. 

 

 

3. Wrap an orange pipe cleaner around the pencil, wrap it all the way around the green pipe cleaner, just up to the end of the pencil. 

 

 

Bunny Pencil Topper

1. Make this the same way as the carrot pencil topper. Place the middle of a white pipe cleaner on your pencil, just below the eraser. Wrap the pipe cleaner around a couple of times. 

 

 

2. With the loose ends make two long loops. Make sure the ends of your loops are below the eraser. 

 

 

3. Wrap another white pipe cleaner around the pencil, wrap it all the way around the bunny’s ears, just up to the end of the pencil.

4. Glue on your google eyes and pink nose. Take a small piece of cotton ball and glue it on the back for the tail. 

 

 

Chick Pencil Topper

1. This ones a little more challenging. Cut your orange pipe cleaner in half. Place the pencil in the middle of an orange pipe cleaner, wrap it around a couple of times (this should be about 1-1½ inches down the pencil). 

 

 

2. Make two loops with the two loose ends (this will be the chick’s feet). 

 

 

3. Wrap your other half of orange pipe cleaner closer to the top, and with a loose end, make a triangle-shaped beak. 

 

 

4. Wrap a yellow pipe cleaner up and around the pencil, working around to cover all the orange pipe cleaner. Start at the bottom, underneath the chick’s feet, wrap between the feet and all the way up to the top of the eraser. Glue on your google eyes and you’re done!
