Flower Pens


This past week I babysat for a friend. While I was there I noticed that she had the cutest flower pens that I have ever seen. I was looking at them closer and realized that they didn’t look very hard to make.


So… I went to the dollar store and I bought green florist tape, I used some fake flowers that I already had in my bedroom and pens from around the house. 039


Cut the flower stems off leaving about 1 1/2 to 2 inches left. 035 


Hold the flower at the top of the pen and start to wrap the tape around to secure the flower.042


Continue wrapping the tape around the rest of the pen. 044


   Until the whole pen is covered.051


Repeat for the rest of the flowers.049 


When finished put all of the pens in a small vase and use as a center piece.091   

I hope you enjoy making these flower pens as much as I did.  Altogether it only took my 20 minutes to make and only cost me $1.00 for the green tape. :) 

P.S.  These make great gift ideas with a little note book !

What do you think, does it seem pretty easy?

Let me know how yours turn out!
