No Sew Felt Rose Pencil Topper
When thinking about going back to school I get a bit of the jitters, even as teachers we too feel the nerves of getting back to work after the summer break, the lesson planning, the meetings, the parents, the deadlines and all the in-between. Children feel that pressure too and these days a lot is expected from them. We need to take a moment and remind them that hard work and dedication pay off, to be strong and open minded and they can accomplish any task.
I've always felt that the little things in life, the little joys that we experience are not just little, they're big, and they make a difference even for just a moment. Adding a personal touch to your school supplies spark a little excitement in me and really do make me anticipate getting back into the classroom.
A pencil topper like this is special because you've made it yourself, it's not just another copy cat from a store, it took time and dedication to complete and that's something to be proud of, even if it's not a masterpiece!
Make this felt flower pencil topper with your little girl to bring to school or even make one to give to the teacher, teachers love this kind of stuff. The tutorial can be found in the seasonal section of The Art Dream under summer projects or click on the photo above to take you straight to the tutorial!
