Follow these simple directions and make a pen that looks like a flower. You can make an entire bouquet of pens to sit on someone's desk. This is a great craft to use with silk flowers that need a new home. It is a fun way to give old flowers new life. Instead of buying new flowers, you might be able to find a variety of nice ones at a thrift store or garage sales.
- Age Guideline: 6 Years and Up
- Time Required: 15 minutes (Does not include drying time)
The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.
Hold the flower next to the pen. The flower should sit on the end of the pen. Clip the flower stem so it is about 2-inches up from the tip of the pen. Remove and leaves from the flower.
While holding the flower stem tightly against the pen, wrap the entire length of the pen with floral tape. This will secure the pen and flower together. The floral tape is tacky so you do not need to use any other tape or glue to hold it in place. You now have a flower topped pen.
