*Note about the glue. I love to use Tacky Glue for projects like this, but if you can’t find this specific glue, you will want to find a glue that works on fabric.
How to make your Valentine Pencil Toppers
Before you get started, you’ll want to make a quick pattern for your hearts from scrap paper. It is the best way to make sure all your hearts are the same size.
Hold the pattern up to a pencil to make sure it is the correct size.
Next, cut out two pieces of felt for each pencil topper. I found it was easiest to fold my pattern in half and also fold my felt. Hold the folded edge of your pattern up to the folded edge of your felt. Cut out your heart.
Use your Tacky Glue to attach your two heart pieces together. Apply glue around the edge of one heart leaving a section at the bottom open. This will be the opening for your pencil.
Put your second heart on top of the heart with glue and press gently. Press and hold for about 20 seconds, then let dry for a couple of minutes before moving to the next step.
Decorate your hearts
