Fun and easy Halloween crafts that turn into a fun pencil or pen topper too!

This is a great craft for a classroom setting, have the kids create their own and it will bring some Halloween spirit to the room whenever they are writing with their pens.

These can also be created with any theme in mind so you can have the kids create a new one each season. Get them excited about writing with their pens and pencils.

Why not also make one for mom and dad to bring to work! You can also give this Halloween pencil topper to your friends as a nice gift! 

This is just one of my favorite pipe cleaner crafts for kids this Halloween.

Craft Supplies:

  • Pom Poms
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Googly Eyes
  • Felt or Foam

Step #1:

Choose which creature you would like to create. Pick out the pom poms, pipe cleaners and felt that would match the needed colors.

For our example we are going to create a pumpkin.

Step #2:

Wrap your pipe cleaner around your finger to create the body of your little creature. Put this to the side.

Step #3:

Use a pom pom as the head of your little creepy crawly. Glue on its googly eyes.

Use a smaller pom pom for its nose (if it has one).

Attach arms and legs to the pom pom as well if they have. (For our example, we don’t have this step)

Step #4:

Glue your pom pom head onto your twirled pipe cleaner.

Twirl it around your favourite marker or pencil and you will be bringing in Halloween in style!

Add accessories! Add hats, or change their expression to your creature.
