Flowerpot Pencils

This desktop arrangement brightens a child’s homework nook and keeps all her pencils ready for the picking..

MATERIALS:Flowerpot Pencils
Hair scrunchies
Craft foam leaves
Craft scissors
Hole punch
Clay pot

Black beans

Time needed: Under 1 Hour

1. For each blossom, wrap 1 or 2 colorful hair scrunchies around the top of a pencil. Next, cut out a pair of green craft foam leaves, using craft scissors to create a scalloped edge. Lightly etch leaf vein lines in the foam with the tip of a toothpick. Using a hole punch, make a hole in the base of each leaf.

2. Then slide the leaves onto the pencil so they rest right beneath the flower. You can even attach a “silk” butterfly (sold at craft stores) to the blossom.

3. Finally, plant the finished flowers in a clay pot filled with dried black beans (if beans fall through the hole in the bottom of the pot, just tape over it).
