Back to School Pencil Topper

Back to School Pencil Topper

It is that time of year again, yep school is starting back up.  My daughter is pretty excited to go back to school and see her friends again.  She is starting First Grade this year, wow can she really be getting this big?

This year I thought it would be fun to make these silly pencil toppers for some of her to take to school.  They remind me of those trolls we use to have when I was growing up.  I remember I use to love them and thought my daughter would get a kick out of the pencil toppers.

My daughter picked the color of the fur we used so that is why they are black, I wanted hot pink but they store did not have it and out of all the colors they did have she choose the black (would be good for Halloween too).  You however and make them in any color you want.  I also had her glue the fur on below the eraser so that way she can still use it.  In the last picture below you can see the eraser top peaking out.  It is mostly hidden but if you need it it is there to use!

And don’t forget to do your first & last day pictures this year.

Craft Fur – 9″x12″ (in any color)
Glue Gun
Googly Eyes


 Cut your fur into pieces 1.5 inches long and 2 inches wide
 Using a hot glue gun, glue along the sides and bottom of the fur back
 Then place your pencil on one side of the fur with the glue and roll it over the fur to cover the top in fur.  NOTE:  We put the pencil just below where the eraser is so that the kids can still use the eraser on the pencil if needed.
 Using your glue gun glue your googly eyes onto your fur
Now you are ready for School with these cute pencil toppers!

      I think we just may have to try them for Christmas and some other holiday’s too! They are so fun and cute they could be made for almost any holiday!

    These would be really cute in Halloween orange and black for a class party and pink ones for Valentine’s Day as an alternative to giving out candy! I love non-candy ideas! Thanks for sharing.

      I am with you there! Non-candy ideas are great, and I agree these could be made for almost any holiday. I think we will be making them for a few different ones!

    I remember having so much fun w/these when I was a kid. Someone above me mentioned Halloween and V.Day, I think it’d be a hilarious bunny for Easter too.

    Tons of possibilities! :)

    I remember these from the 80s! We’d spin them between or hands to make thee fur/hair look funky.

      YES! I remember doing that too! We had so much fun with them back then. I sure hope my daughter has as much fun with them as we did!

    Oh my goodness my mom had one of these with bright orange fur! I remember it gracing our desk during most of my childhood. I’ll definitely have to make some for my daughter!

    I must say it was hard to find your website in search results.
    You write great articles but you should rank your page higher in search engines.
