Chocolate Halloween Pencils for Teacher Appreciation Gift-Rolo Candy-So Fun!

We've got another fun Halloween themed gift for teacher. I'm sure you've seen the pencils that are made out of a roll of Rolo candy. Well, how about making  a Halloween pencil instead of a regular yellow pencil? That sounds like fun. A yummy treat in a cute package. Perfect for teacher! We've designed these tags for you to put on the Rolo Pencils

These candy pencils are pretty easy to make and  the sky's the limit on how you design them. The paper only measures 4 1/4" x 3 1/4" and can be made out of a scrap of paper. The top, or the eraser on the top of the pencil is just a pink strip of pink scrapbook.  If you don't have a Cricut or Silhouette to cut out the circle for the top of the eraser, just trace the top of the Rolo roll for the circle. All this info is in the YouTube tutorial video.  Click HERE  to see it.

Besides the Rolo candy,  which we found at 79 cents, you  may already have the rest of the supplies shown above. Hershey candy kisses are  $3.28 at Walmart. Shopko puts them on sale regularly for only 2.99.  They will most definitely go on sale between now and Halloween.

You can use scrapbook paper that is one color or has a design, either one looks great.  I like to ink my designs. I think it gives the edges definition but this project can certainly be done without inking. I used brown ink for this project.  I just purchased the Martha Stewart foam pouncers and I love using them when inking.

This tool makes it so easy to ink your projects. Five different sizes are included. The price is $5.99 but use a coupon and get it for less. (I bought mine at JoAnn's)

The Rolo pencils fit nicely inside the pretzel bags. We bought ours at Walmart, 20 bags for $1.76.  Add a bow and our tag and you're done.

In the photo you will see a tag cut out in the 1 1/2" scallop paper punch and the 2" scallop paper punch.

This tag can be made cut out in two different sizes. You can also use either a circle or a scallop paper punch. I really like the  EK Success punches.  We've included 9 different colors of tags for you to use.

Now, you'll want to know how to put together this sweet gift for teacher! We found a video tutorial on YouTube, the instructions were very good. Click HERE to see the video tutorial. But if you prefer a photo tutorial click HERE
