Put it together

Pencil toppers have always been a favorite craft for back to school.  Who doesn’t like getting distracted from an assignment with a colorful creation on top of your favorite writing utensil?

To assemble these classic pencil toppers, you first want to wind your pipe cleaner around the pencil.  Then you want to curl the end to make a solid surface to glue.  If you want beads be sure to add them to the pipe cleaner before you make your solid surface.
