I wanted to do something special for my grandchildren’s classrooms for Halloween. I wanted to make pom pom monsters. So, I spent a lot of time on Pinterest looking for the perfect pom pom monsters. Mind you, I found several but not what I wanted. Then I went through my button box and found these bats and spiders….I thought “how would they look with the googly monster eyes I had purchased?” That was it! I found my match and just what I wanted for my Pom Pom Monster Pencil Toppers!!!

Grab your glue gun and pom pom makers and lets get crafty,
