I have always loved flower pens…and I thought maybe if I had a few of them around the house they might be easier to find. :-) I also thought I would share with all of you how to make them as well. Hope you enjoy!
*A package of regular ball point pens
*Floral Tape in various colors (This can be a hard find…I found mine at an online Wholesale Floral site, on their Floral Accessories page.)
*Silk Flowers, any kind that you like…I often see these made using Gerbera Daisies — I used Ranunculus, just in case you were wondering :-)
First you need to cut your flower off of the stem, leaving about 1 inch. You can use an old pair of scissors but preferably cut them using wire cutters.
Remove (and discard) your pen lid. Hold your flower next to your pen…
and then use your floral tape to attach your flower to your pen.
Some of the light colored floral tape was kind of see through, so I went down and up and then back down again. (When you are done, just rip the tape and press it against your pen until it sticks. If you need more help using floral tape see Tip #2 in my How to Make a Boutonniere post)
And voila. Cute, fun, “harder” to lose flower pens…
in lots of fun colors!!!
