It’s true, we do enjoy our felt crafts here on the blog and pencil toppers are a perfect way to use up leftover pieces of felt scraps. Since the pattern pieces are prettty small, you only need a little bit of felt to complete the craft. Other similar crafts we’ve made are these Among Us-themed pencil toppers and these adorable animal pencil toppers. Whatever gets the kids motivated to pick up a pencil over the devices;).
