Let’s Make It
Begin by cutting large heart shapes from the foam. You can do these in whichever colours you wish. Make them larger, so you can fit smaller hearts inside of them. To make our hearts nice and even, we folded the foam in half and cut out half of the heart to create two even sides.
Add a dab of glue to the back of the smaller hearts and press them to the inside of the larger hearts. Use two different coloured hearts when you do this step so you can see the way they compliment each other.
If you wish to add a third even smaller heart, go for it! Otherwise, proceed to the next step.
Now all you need to do is attach the heart to the pencil. So we could avoid poking holes in the hearts, we glued it directly to the top of the pencil as shown. Just add some glue (hot glue works best) and press into place. Your foam heart pencil toppers are now ready to be used!
