I still like to make cute and fun Halloween items and crafts. I want to share easy to make gifts that a great for busy but creative parents.
The most fun time for me going to help at school were those festive Halloween or Fall fest parties.
These creative and fun pencils are a great non-food party treat that celebrates Halloween without being scary.
The great thing is that all these supplies are available at the dollar store!
The bag of pompoms, packs of pencils, and even the wiggle eyes are there. You can get the glue gun sticks there too, but not really the gun itself.
For much less then the cost of a bag of chocolate candy, you can create these fun play pencils to delight the kids.
Because I wanted the monsters on the pencils to be big and fluffy, I hot glued several of them together to form the fluff ball.
If you are letting the kids help, I recommend a low temp hot glue for safety.
Put two pompoms together with a dab of hot glue.
Then add more onto the first two to get the size of the puff ball that you want.
Once your puff ball is the right size, add a dab of hot glue to the pencil top and glue it down to the puff ball on the back.
Add two more small dots of hot glue to the front of the puff ball, and ass wiggle eyes or eye.
If you want to add the banner words, print them out using your computer and cut them into strips.
Glue the strip around the pencil and trim the ends with a V shape.
They are ready to give out!
Easy, fast, and cheap, these cute pencils are a great addition to Halloween treats!
