Crafty Critterz – Flower Penz

Have you glammed up your school supplies? Check out this blast from the past — a cute craft from our archive.

What you need:

  • Thin, regular ballpoint pens
  • Fake flowers on wire stems
  • Green floral tape
  • Scissors

What you do:

  1. Take the cap off the pen.
  2. Take the leaves off the flower so it’s just the stem with the flower on top.
  3. Cut the stem so it’s shorter than the pen.
  4. Hold the flower next to the pen so the flower rests on top of the pen.
  5. Start at the top of the pen and wrap the green tape around so it attaches the stem to the pen.
  6. Continue wrapping the pen to the stem until you reach the bottom of the pen.
  7. If you want, spray the flower with perfume!

    I’ve done these before–lots of fun to make! But I took the flower off the stem and took the pen apart so I had the outer tube by itself. I hot glued the flower to the top of the pen, then I wrapped it with floral tape to the bottom of the tube. Put the ink tube back in and I have a flower that writes. If your pen doesn’t come apart (the button top and the pen ink tube have to come off to do it the way I did it), this is a great way to do it. And it’s easier than my way; I’m just a perfectionist, lol. Once I finished the pens, I painted a flower pot as a pen holder (we had decorated with a flower theme at the time).
