Not only is it so adorable, but these are easy enough for older kids to make on their own!  When I saw this idea over at Martha Stewart, I knew it was the perfect craft for my 10 year old daughter!  She made a whole bunch of these to give out to her friends for Christmas.

She used a low-temperature glue gun to stick everything together!  Low temperature glue guns stick just as well for projects like this but won’t burn little fingers.  It’s still hot but a 10 year old shouldn’t have any problem using it!!  They’re really inexpensive and you can grab them on Amazon or even at Wal-mart.  Be sure your twigs aren’t too skinny or they just end up breaking off (speaking from experience!).

Snowman Pencil Toppers


  • Pencils
  • Low-temperature glue gun
  • 1″ Styrofoam Balls (2 per pencil)
  • Black paper for eyes
  • Orange felt or foam (for nose)
  • Ribbon or felt for scarf
  • Twigs for arms

How to make a snowman pencil topper!


  1. Cut small triangles out of the orange felt or foam for the nose.  Cut your ribbon or felt into 2.5″ strips.  We used a small hole punch to create the black eyes.
  2. Using your hand, roll 1 foam ball on the table to make it a little bit smaller.  You may need to add a bit of pressure.
  3. Push the wood end of an unsharpened pencil about 1/4″ into the larger foam ball to create hole.  Fill the hole with glue and insert the eraser into the hole.  Glue the second ball on top.
  4. Glue the scarf on first followed by the nose and finally the eyes.   Add a little bit of glue to then end of each twig and insert into the ball.
