These flower pens are so easy to make!
This is what you'll need to get started.
(and a glue gun or super glue!)
-package of pens ( I used Bic)
-a few silk flowers ( pull the stems off)
-green floral tape (Dollar Tree)
-small vase (Dollar Tree)
-glass beads (Dollar Tree again!)
Step One: Pull the long stem off the flower (put green covering back over flower...this is what keeps it together) and remove the cap on the bottom of the pen.
Step two: Start at the bottom of your pen, and wrap the floral tape all the way to the top. Pull tightly as you wind the tape.
Step three: hot glue the bottoms of the flowers and press the little stem part down into the top of your pen. Done! They are that easy!
I purchased the flowers for .50 each (they were half price!) Everything else I purchased at the dollar store. So, each pen probably cost around .75 to make!
I recently made a whole vase of pens for Secretary's Day. This would also make a cute teacher's gift or place a pen on top top of some pretty stationary for a birthday or Mother's Day gift. The possibilities are endless!
