Products Used:

Other Tools and Materials Needed:

  • Sharpened Pencil
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Paint Brush
  • Acrylic Paints
  • 1.5" Styrofoam Balls

Project Steps:

  1. Step 1:

    Paint: Paint styrofoam ball with Creativity Street® Tempera paint. Set aside to dry.

  2. Step 2:

    Making the Bear: For each pencil topper you will need 3 different sized Creativity Street® Pom Pons (one--extra small, for the top of the nose, two--small for the eyes and three--medium sized for the ears and mouth). Glue one medium sized Pom Pon to the center of the styrofoam ball for the mouth. Add the extra small Pom Pon on top of this. Next take the 2 small Pom Pons and use a scissors to cut one side of each Pom Pon flat. Glue the flat side of each Pom Pon just above the mouth for the eyes. Glue Creativity Street® Wiggle Eyes on top of them. To complete your bear take the last 2 medium sized Pom Pons and glue them above the eyes for the bear’s ears. Set aside to dry.

  3. Step 3:

    Make it a Pencil Topper: Using the sharp end of a pencil, push a hole into the bottom of the styrofoam ball about half way up. Take the pencil out, turn the pencil around and add your Bear Pencil Topper to the eraser end of the pencil.
