Personalized Pencil Toppers

"Hey, that's my pencil" You won't have to worry about that anymore with these personalized pencil toppers. When you pencil wears down, simply remove the topper and put it on a new one. Make an ordinary pencil something special . Use beads to spell out a name, nickname or favorite phrase.
What you'll need:

Pencil eraser heads


Alphabet beads

White craft glue

How to make it :

1. Place eraser head on a pencil

2. Put a little white glue around the base of the eraser head.

3. Wrap string around the eraser head,smoothing out the glue as you go. Wrap enough to cover most of the bottom half of the eraser head

4.Cut a a piece of string that is about 8 inches long.

5. Tie a knot in one end and string beads on from the other end. The knot should keep the beads from falling off the other ends.

6.Once all the beads are on, tie a knot after the last bead.

7.Apply some more glue to the string wrapped around the pencil head.

8.If necessary ,trim the long end of the string that the beads are on so that your excess is about 3-4 inches in length.

9.Wrap the excess string from the beads around the eraser head, adding more glue of needed and smoothing with you fingers as you go.
