Fancy pencils for some festive doodle time? Make an afternoon of it with some hot chocolate while doodling or drawing after the pencils are made!

Start with:

·         Thin Cardboard (we used a beverage can carton)

·         Scissors

·         Pencil

·         Paper hole punch

·         Yarn

·         Tape

·         Cardstock

Create It!

Step 1: Draw approximately seven stars of varying sizes on cardboard.

Step 2: Cut out and punch hole in center of each star.


Step 3: Wrap yarn around each star, tucking end of yarn under to secure.

Step 4: Gently place pencil tip through punched hole and slide star to eraser end of pencil. Start with the smallest star first! Repeat with remaining stars, spacing evenly, to form the tree.

Step 5: Cut two identical stars from cardstock. Tape back to back on eraser.

Once Christmas is over, the decorations are easily removed from the pencil. A “tree-mendously” fun craft to start a holiday doodle session!
