School supplies are way more fun when they are cute and personalized, wouldn’t you agree? With fall just around the corner I thought it would be fun to create some adorable felt woodland pencil toppers for my kids. Who knows maybe it will inspire them to get their homework done quicker.
I teamed up with Spellbinders to create this cute and simple craft. This is a fun project you could even make with your kids.
What You Will Need:
- Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machine
- Standard Cutting Plates
- Brown, White, Black, Grey, Pink, Yellow Felt
- Contour Hey Foxy Steel Rule Die
- Contour Who’s There? Steel Rule Die
- Contour Bandit Steel Rule Die
- White Embroidery Thread
- Pink Embroidery Thread
- Felt & Foam Tacky Glue
Place the Contour Who’s There? steel rule die face up on the standard cutting plate.
Place a piece of brown felt on the top of the steel die. Here’s a tip: You can easily cut up to 3 layers of the felt at one time.
Put the second cutting plate on top of the felt and run it through the Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.
Remove the cutting plates and the pieces of the cut felt. You will need two pieces of each body part for each topper you plan to make.
Now it’s time to start assembling your cute little pencil toppers. For the owl I used the pink thread to stitch the heart on the front of the owl. Next, layer the two pieces of the owl body parts together.
Use white thread to hand-stitch the pieces together. Make sure you leave a small opening at the bottom for the pencil.
Once you’ve stitched the piece together glue the little details, like the eyes, on the felt topper.
Insert a pencil to finish your super cute pencil toppers.
I adore how these cute little felt woodland pencil toppers turned out. I think these would make super cute party favors for a woodland themed birthday party too.
In addition to the owl I also made a fox and raccoon, they are all just so darn cute! I may just have to keep them for myself.
