Kids Craft: Fuzzy Bunny Pencil Topper

I used to make these fuzzy bunny pencil toppers as a child and sell them to my school mates (however I didn't make them with ears and a nose...they were genderless and I made them in every color under the sun!). What is neat about these is that when you twirl the pencil back and forth in your hands, they get "fluffier" Immediately below is the before twirl...
...and this is the after twirl...
Here's some quick directions:
Supplies Needed:
  • Fake Fur 3" X 4"
  • Pencil
  • Glue gun and glue
  • Rubber Band
  • White Felt (pink felt optional, I colored my ears in with Copics)
  • Google Eyes
  • Nose (I used a pink plastic rhinestone)
  • Ribbon


  • Lay your fake fur with the fur towards the table
  • Glue 1/2 of one short side of fur and lay eraser and pencil in it.
  • Glue the bottom length of the fur to the pencil, rolling as you go.
  • Glue the end of the fur back to itself.
  • Using the rubber band, wind it around the bottom and tie a ribbon on top covering it.
  • Cut ears out of felt, glue onto head
  • Add eyes and nose
  • Let glue dry and then have fun...

Skraptacular Designs said... funny that you have just made these and put them on your blog! My friends and I were just talking about how we use to make these when were kids and wondered if kids these days even know what they are.

They are so fun and cute! Thanks for bringing back memories!

Absolutely adorable. Starting my own collection soon. Keep in touch. Is that ok? When I was a kid, I used to sell hair woogies. Sometimes I got paid and sometimes I didn't.
