Instructions to make the Pipe Cleaner Pencil Topper Bird
- Hold the pencil with the pointy side facing down. Choose a nice thick pencil in matching colors so that the birds stand out. Roll the pipe cleaner around the pencil in a tight grip. You can stretch it slightly taking care that there are no gaps between each roll. A fuzzy pipe cleaner works better than a metallic one.
- Cut out a small triangle out of yellow foam for its beak. Using glue, stick in two feathers to form the crown. We used nice bright colors – Pink Feathers with orange. Or you could make your own in any bright color. Stick on the googly eyes and the foam triangle for its beak and you are done
