Pencil toppers are great way to make even the most boring pencil look super cute! Here’s a few you can make or buy to add a little kawaii while you work.
Crocheters can have a lot of fun with this digital pattern for animal pencil cosies by Woolysmile. It comes with instructions for a frog, bunny, bee and bear, but you could easily customise them to create more animals. For a free option, try the pony pencil toppers at Rebeckah’s Treasures.
These plush Pusheen pencil toppers are so tiny! They’d look just as cute as a desk accessory to keep you company and come in three pastel colours as well as the usual grey.
These Sumikko Gurashi pencil toppers at ARTBOX are designed to look like drinks and I love them so much. They come in packs of 3 but I don’t know how you can possibly choose just one set.
So far, all these have been for decoration only but these cute fruits are Iwako erasers! You get 3 in a pack for just under £1 so you can afford to decorate all your pencils. There’s dinosaurs, dolphins and gorillas too.
