I’ve been wanting to make flower pens for years! I always love writing with then and since my students are always stealing my pens off my desk, I finally made a few. I actually had no pens to write with today because they all disappeared so this project was a necessity. I finally realized that it’s just way more fun to have flower pens on your desk than regular pens. Plus they are so easy to make.
I can’t believe I’ve never made them before. They were so easy to make!
- silk flowers
- glue gun and glue stick
- green washi tape
Step 1: Cut the flower about half an inch from the base of the flower.
Step 2: Remove the top part of the pen. Squeeze a little hot glue inside the tube. Then slide the wire inside of the tube. Hold in place until the glue dries.
Step 3: Wrap the washi tape around the pen.
That’s it! You’re done and you have some cute pens to show off.
Now I needed a cute little pot to put my pens in so I took an old candle jar and spray painted it with yellow paint. Then I added a chalkboard label that I found in the dollar section at Michaels and added my name. Now I have a cute way to display my fabulous flower pens.
I can’t wait to take them to school tomorrow and start using them. Again – Why did I wait so long to make these??
I’m pretty sure my 6th grade boys won’t want to write with them and maybe I can bribe my girls to do their work with a flower pen:)
Does writing with flower pens make you happy too?
