This peas in a pod craft is so fun to make and can be used to give as a special little gift to someone special in your life. Write a special message on the front. You can even add a magnet to the back. We just placed our “peas” in the pod without any adhesive, but you can put a little glue to make sure that the pompoms stay put if you are gifting it.

How to make a Peas in a Pod Craft
Step 1: Use the Peas in a Pod Craft Template

Step 2: Creat the Pea Pod
- Use the glue stick to put glue on the sides of the pea pod.
- *Do not glue along the top of the pea pod.

Step 3 (Optional): Write a Special Message
- Take your markers and decorate or write a message on the front of the paper pea pods that you have created.
Step 4: Make the Peas

- Press some self-adhesive googly eyes onto the pompoms.
- Then put your little peas into the paper pod that you created for your craft.
