DIY Pencil Toppers

Making your own Pencil Toppers is a simple back-to-school craft. These pencil toppers are completely customizable, like lunchbox notes that last the whole day… or week! As long as the pencil is being used, your child will have a fun reminder. These pencil toppers make easy and inexpensive gifts for an entire class, or can be doled out one at a time to your children as they need a reminder or a pick-me-up.

These DIY pencil toppers are the last project in this week’s Back to School Craft Lightning. All week long, my Co-Host Angie from the Country Chic Cottage and I, along with our Guest Host Laura Kelly, have been sharing 15 minute or less back to school crafts, and we’ve had lots of our crafty friends join in… be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to check out their projects.
