Back to School season is HERE! Can you believe it? Last year we shared some super cute flower pens to give as teacher gifts (or to keep for yourself!). We loved them so much that we made a new batch. These pens are surprisingly easy to assemble, and they make the best little bouquets! Here’s how to make your own…
Supplies: fake flowers (we got ours from the thrift store, but here are some similar ones), ballpoint pens with caps (not retractable – you need to be able to remove the bottom), pliers, and hot glue.
1. Use the pliers to slowly pinch the end of a pen. The base should wiggle out. Remove the base and discard.
2. Cut a fake flower bloom, leaving about 1/4 inch of stem (or if the head of the flower is removable without cutting, simply remove it.).
3. Add a small amount of hot glue to the base of the open pen and insert the flower.
4. Let cool and you’re done!
Have any more fun back to school ideas? We’d love to hear them!
Such a beautiful idea! Thanks for sharing.
