Valentine Charm Pencil
Total Time 1 hour Ages school-age

We've got the write idea for that cool school pal: a bead-dangling pencil that's a real charmer.

Note: These are the materials needed to make one charm pencil.

What you'll need

  • About 1 foot of narrow ribbon (ours is 1/8 inch wide)
  • New pencil
  • 4 beads (we used 12-mm heart-shaped beads and 6-mm round beads)
  • Scissors
  • Red card stock
  • Tacky glue
  • Marker or pen
Helpful Tip:

If the ribbon slides down the pencil, glue it in place.

How to make it

  1. Tie the ribbon around the top of the pencil and secure it with a tight double knot, leaving 2 fairly even ends.

  2. Thread the beads onto one end of the ribbon, knot the end at the length you want, and trim.

  3. Cut 2 identical hearts from card stock. Glue the hearts together with the other half of the ribbon sandwiched inside as shown. Knot and trim the ribbon. Write a message on the heart.
