How to Make a Flower Pen

by Lindsey Crafter

You won't be able to stop taking notes with these cheerful floral pens. Make a bouquet to keep on the kitchen counter in a pencil cup, or arrange in a vase to add some color to your desk at work.

Remove flower bloom from stem

Hot glue bloom to the end of pen

Tip

  • Have annoying hot glue whisps? A blast of heat from a hair dryer will make them vanish instantly!

Wrap the stem

Add a dab of glue to the base of the flower to attach floral tape. Tightly wrap floral tape around the pen at a slight downwards angle, overlapping the edges by a 1/4 inch.

Finish the stem

Finish wrapping the pen when the edge of the tape is flush with the pen's cap. Add a layer of glue to seal the end and keep the tape from unwrapping.

Arrange your finished pens in a vase for your desk or kitchen counter.

Tip

  • Style finished pens in newspaper cones or burlap as original party favors for a bridal or baby shower!
