Take a basic pencil, add our not-so-scary printable monster, and you’ve got a perfect Halloween treat that’s sure to bring smiles!
What You Need
- Printable Monster Pencil Toppers (download here)
- Wiggle eyes & craft glue (optional)
Print the pencil toppers onto card stock. Cut out each monster, trimming just inside the dotted line.
Punch a hole on each circle. Because most pencils are a tad larger than a standard hole punch, after you punch the hole, shift the punch slightly and punch again to enlarge the hole. It will take out a slivered moon shape.
Slide the pencil through the holes, flexing the pencil topper a bit. You’ll find that it’s easier to work from the bottom of the pencil instead of the eraser end.
When the monster is at the top of the pencil, you can smooth out the curve in the paper so it lays against the pencil more.
For extra personality and to make your monsters even more fun, glue some wiggle eyes over the printed eyes!
Hand these out to trick-or-treaters, use them for a school party, or just enjoy having monsters around as you work. Your kids may even like doing a little monster puppet show with them!
