Step 1: 

Download my template from the stats tab above.  Cut out one of the Number Two Pencil signs.  Place two small slits in it with your X-Acto knife, above and below the letters TW.  Put that off to the side.

Step 2: 

If you have brown fuzzy pipe cleaners you will only need two for the next step.  I am using regular brown pipe cleaners, so I need three.  Start with two pipe cleaners and cross their tops over each other.

Step 3: 

Twist each end in the opposite direction, connecting them and making one long pipe cleaner.  Do the same with your third pipe cleaner.

Step 4: 

Cover the entire top part of your pencil with glue dots.  Three glue dots should cover the entire area.

Step 5: 

Starting at the bottom of that area begin wrapping your pipe cleaner around the pencil.  Wrap about two entire pipe cleaners.

Step 6: 

Once you have created a donut shape on the bottom begin wrapping your pipe cleaners towards the top of the pencil.

Step 7: 

Keep wrapping towards the top of the pencil.  When you get to th etop wrap the end around and create a little swirl.

Step 8: 

Use your hot glue gun to glue on some googley eyes.

Step 9: 

Slide your pencil down through the slits you cut in the Number 2 sign.  All done!
