This week, the girls and I made flower pens. Flower pens are cool because when you’re not using them, you can store them upside down in a vase and they pretty up any room in the house. When you need a pen, a vase full of them are there and handy for you to use.
They make a very cute Mother’s Day gift.

Here are the steps:
1. Take an old plastic flower of your choice and snip off the stem leaving about and inch or two.
2. Hold flower stem flush to pen and begin taping the flower to the pen beginning at the top and working you way down.
3. Cover the entire pen with the flower shop tape leaving the point open to be able to write with.
4. Store in a vase with other flower pens and store somewhere in your house for decor.
Flower pens are easy and fun to make. If you’re a teacher like myself, they are an easy craft for your students to make as a Mother’s Day gift for their Moms. What Mom doesn’t need a pen and love flowers? A gift that offers two great things in one!
Happy Mother’s Day to all you Moms out there. I hope your hubby and kids spoiled you rotten yesterday.
