How to Make a Heart Pencil Topper

Craft Supplies:

The supplies are simple, all you need is some red, white and pink pipe cleaners and the pencil you wish to top.

Step #1:

Twirl one end of your pink pipe cleaner around your pen or pencil. 

Step #2:

With the other end of that same pipe cleaner, bend out a heart shape. The size is up to you, just use whatever length of your pipe cleaner that is left.

Step #3:

Bend another heart shape into a red or white pipe cleaner. You can make this heart bigger, smaller or the same size as your pink one.  Be sure to leave a tail on the heart so you can attach it to the topper.

Step #4:

Wrap the tail of your white pipe cleaner around the tail of your pink one. You can intertwine these so the colors alternate.

Now, re-attach your pencil topper to your pencil and you are ready for Valentine’s day!

I have made this heart pencil topper from pink and white pipe cleaners but you are free to use whichever colors of pipecleaner you wish!
