This Valentine’s Day kids craft is a fun way to decorate your pencils. My kids are helping me make these heart-shaped pencil toppers and put them on pencils to give to their friends on V-day. We found our Valentine-themed pencils at the dollar store, but any pencil will work. You can also use any color pipe cleaners, but I love using the sparkly glitter chenille stems.
What You’ll Need:
- Pipe Cleaners (one per pencil)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Shape a pipe cleaner into a heart. Leave about an inch of pipe cleaner at the bottom of your heart to wrap around the top of your pencil.
- Wrap the end of your heart-shaped pipe cleaner around the top of your pencil. Two or three times is good.
- Use a hot glue gun and secure the pipe cleaner to the pencil with a dot of hot glue.
See how easy that was? It won’t take long to make a bunch to give out to all your Valentines!
