While Sierra and I were out shopping one night, we came across cute googly eye pencil monsters at Target. They were in the Dollar Spot section. Not a bad deal, but when you have several kids you would like to give them to for Halloween – it adds up.
These cuties were my inspiration.
I got these pom poms at Hobby Lobby for $2.99, but with a 40% off coupon.
It came with different sizes. The large and medium worked great for this project. I will keep the really small ones for a class project this winter.
$1 pencil packs from Dollar Tree.
I hot glued the googly eyes on first. Then hot glued the pom pom onto the pencil. My youngest daughter asked about using the eraser. I hot glued one pom pom monster onto an eraser cap for her pencil. That way she can take the cap off and use the eraser underneath.
On a few of them, I twisted a pipe cleaner around the pencil. I already had pipe cleaners on hand and googly eyes. Both can be bought at craft stores and Dollar Tree.
They are cute!
I made 24 pencils for $4-5. Even if I did not have the supplies on hand, it would only have been $6-8. If you only need 1-6, buy them at Target, need more = make them.
