I grabbed some supplies which included: Beacon Felt Glue, Marabou Feather Boa Trim by Expo International, Fairy Dust Glitter by Clearsnap, 1" - 1 1/2" Styrofoam Brand Balls by Flora Craft, Assorted Rhinestones and Pencils.
I applied the Felt Glue to the styrofoam ball and sprinkled on the Fairy Dust Glitter to cover, then shook off the excess and let it dry.
I pushed the styrofoam ball onto the top of the pencil, removed it; applied some of the Felt Glue to the top of the pencil then placed the styrofoam ball back on; and let it dry.
I applied some rhinestones with the Felt Glue and let them dry.
I wrapped a piece of the Marabou Feather Boa around the pencil, trimmed off the excess with scissors and glued in place with the Felt Glue; then let it dry.
Then you end up with this adorable fun pencil.....
It looks so cute and everyone will want one....so make a bunch!
While what I created is definitely more girlie a boy version could be made by making the styrofoam ball into a baseball, soccer ball or use Fun Foam to create something geared for boys!
