How to Make Emoji Pencil Toppers
Get back to school in style when you give these emoji pencil toppers a try. They are a great craft for kids who love all things emoji, and are just in time for a little back to school crafting fun! Plus, they use a hot glue pen, my new favorite crafting tool. This how to make emoji pencil toppers post is sponsored by the Role Mommy Writer’s Network.
It’s everything a hot glue gun is, and MORE. Easy to grip and it’s cute and fun and new and I love it a lot. Plus, I feel like I can be a little more precise with my glue application and that helps, because I’ve made some giant messes with glue guns in the past. Haven’t we all, though?
Our friends at Westcott have come out with the hottest pens around (see what I did there!?) and I am so excited about it! I’m also a little more comfortable letting the kiddos help with hot glue projects using the pen than my mom’s old enormous dinosaur of a glue gun. You can find one for yourself at Michael’s Stores or on Amazon. YOU WANT ONE, so go order one. I’ll wait. Or run to the store, grab a coffee, and then come back to craft with me.

Here is what you will need and do to make your own emoji pencil toppers:
– yellow pom poms
– black and red craft felt
– hot glue, glue pen (yes, a hot glue pen. It’s amazing. Craft game changing!)
These are so incredibly easy.
Begin by creating the face of your emoji. You will use the black and red craft felt to do this. Simply cut out a few heart eyes, some black smiles, and a small black pair of sunglasses from the felt.
Remember you can make any emoji face you wish using the felt. Once your shapes are cut out, use a dab of hot glue to glue them into place. Just a small dab will do. This is one of the things I love most about the glue pen- it’s much easier to do the smaller dabs of glue with the pen than a traditional glue gun!
Cute, right? Once the faces are dry, you can attach them to the ends of your pencil. Place a small dab of hot glue on the underside of each face. Press the pom pom to the top of the pencil and hold in place until each pom pom is secure.
Repeat, creating as many emoji pencil toppers as you wish. As you can see, this is an easy, fun, and CHEAP back to school craft that kids are sure to love. Watch for a few other fun how to make emoji craft ideas coming very soon! Keep those glue pens and refills close by!
Gather your new hot glue pen, emoji pencil topper supplies and show some emoji love when you give these easy pencil toppers a try!
