Everyone Loves Flower Pens!

Flower pens/pencils are great fun to make. They are also a very practical craft to make as you can sell them, give them as gifts, or keep them for your own personal use. Put them in a vase or cup and set them on your table for display. Because of the big beautiful flower on the top they don’t get lost as easily. You can get pretty creative making them, adding bows, ribbons or a little bling to the center of the flowers. You will find lots of tutorials showing you how to make them. Here’s how I do it:

Supplies
silk flowers
floral tape
pencils or pens
wire cutters

Use your wire cutters to clip the silk flower stem down to about 4 inches. Use two small pieces of floral tape to cover the top part of your pen or pencil. If you are making a flower pencil you may want to skip this step so the eraser can be used later on. Next hold the stem of the flower close to your pen or pencil.

Start at the top and begin to twist the floral tape tightly around the pen or pencil and the stem. Twist it down to about one inch from the bottom.

You should leave enough space to put the cap on your pen or to sharpen your pencil. Alhumdulilah, thats it! Enjoy:-)
