- hot glue gun
- Craft Knife or scissors
- scraps of ribbon. I used the ribbon that had wrapped up my Easter eggs and a box of chocs.
- Feathers, real or artificial. I used artificial for the bright green colour.
- scrap of material to cover ribbon so it won't melt.
You can swap the ribbon for material but I wanted to be able to pare the pencil and use it. You could to the same wrapping a pen but I think the end result works best with a pencil.
