How to make Pencil Grips

OK, I am back to share how to make the pencil grips. I apologize for the delay...I honestly thought I was reminding folks about these (I sometimes forget some oldies-but-goodies).
With a little help from my daughter, we were able to film the actual making of the grips. Here's what you'll need

  •  beads (Hobby Lobby has some cute ones in the jewelry making section...animal shapes are really adoable)
  • soft cord (in the ribbon section of your local Hobby Lobby or craft store)
  • loops that are used to make potholders, sizes medium & small (medium is for the wrist band and small for the pencil)
Watch this easy to follow video. They really are THIS SIMPLE to make! ;-)
I hope this helps..please let me know if you need further clarification or have other questions. Happy gripping! ;-)

I came to your blog through TBA site. I was interested in youe tutorial to make pencil grips but for some reason the video keeps stopping after 5 seconds.

There might be anything with the video itself?

Very cool, thanks. I'll have to try this with my kids.

Glad this was helpful. Hopefully it's running all the way through now. I had a friend check it and said it ran fine on her end, so I am not sure why it was stopping.
