Pencil Toppers

Aren't these cute?! I found this idea on Pinterest (isn't that where all good ideas come from??), but added a few touches of my own, including tiny seed beads for eyes. The "carrot noses" are toothpicks that I coloured with orange marker and cut short. If you're wondering what the white balls are, they are actually styrofoam. I discovered completely by accident that you get a kind of golf ball effect if you heat them carefully with a heat gun! Who knew?

These are great Beccy. I actually thought you had used golf balls until I read the post - but of course golf balls would be too heavy.
