- Double sided paper tape
- A pencil

Making the Christmas Tree Pencil Topper
These pencil toppers crafts look super festive because of the patterned foam sheet. You could alternately use a plain foam sheet in green or any color basically. Start by cutting out a 5-inch tree shape from a sheet of Crafty patterned Foam. This step helps the little ones develop their scissor cutting fine motor skills.
Using a pencil, carefully trace out the shape outline of the tree. We need mirror images so remember to turn the pattern foam sheet, pattern down.
Carefully cut out the tracing so that we have two patterned foam trees. This will form the main part of our pencil topper craft.
Our foam sheet did not have a sticky back so we cut out some strips of the double-sided paper tape and stuck them along the edges. Peel off the sticky backing. If your foam sheet has a sticky backing, carefully peel the backing off the pattern side, press the pencil in, and sandwich between two foam cutouts.
Time to decorate. Squeeze the back end of your favorite pen or pencil inside foam tree. This will act as the trunk of the tree.
Punch out a paper snowflake using white paper. Using glue, stick the snowflake star to the top of your tree. You could alternatively just use a foam star sticker at the top. Add tiny Red sequin stickers that shine like a real Christmas light.
Tada! Your Christmas Tree Pencil Topper is ready!
Well, we couldn’t stop the Christmas Tree craft idea and have been having lots of fun making these Christmas Tree Pencil Topper.
The foam is available at your nearest craft shop, and can be put together in just a few minutes. Plus the mini trees are such fun! Perhaps your little ones might like to give them as cute friendship gifts to their buddies too? I think they’d also be great for party favors made in a winter party theme.
