Smiley Face Graduation Pencil Topper

What every Graduate needs.  A Smiley Face Graduation Pencil Topper. 

And because this little guy’s feeling really special, he needed a bow tie.

To make the Smiley Face Pencil Topper you’ll need:

  • 2″ Smoothfoam Ball
  • Sanding Block or Fine Sandpaper
  • Craft Knife
  • Yellow and Black Acrylic Paint
  • Pencil
  • Black Cardstock or Black Chipboard
  • Red Twine
  • Black Brad
  • Black Gingham Ribbon
  • Craft Glue
  1. Lightly sand ridge from the smoothfoam ball.
  2. To make the top of the ball flat, cut a small portion from the top of the ball with a craft knife.
  3. Paint the ball with yellow paint.
  4. Paint the top portion of ball with black paint and paint on face.
  5. Bore a hole into the bottom of the ball big enough to fit the pencil.
  6. Using the red twine, make a small tassel.
  7. Cut a 2″ square piece of black chipboard.
  8. Punch a small hole in center of the chipboard.  Insert ends of the tassel and black brad.
  9. Glue Mortarboard onto top of the Smiley Face.  Insert onto pencil
