Because my computer is sorta down right now, I decided to do this craft on video from my phone. This is my first time doing a video tutorial, so let me know how bad it is!
Here's what you will need:
Cardboard, marker, scissors and X-acto knife to make your template.
Tulle and ribbon in your chosen colors for your pompom.
Pretty pencil and a hot glue gun.
I will show you in the video how to cut 2 circles of cardboard into a template. You'll wrap the tulle around the cardboard template until you can't fit any more. You will cut along the edge of the tulle circle then remove the cardboard pieces. Tie with a ribbon to secure then hot glue the pencil in place. (in the video I forgot to remove the eraser first! Removing the eraser makes the glue hold much better since it has that space to fill up. I went out of frame also..sorry!) Then trim the uneven pieces of tulle. All done! It takes less then 10 minutes and is a super cute.
Have fun making the pencil topper and Happy Valentines day!
