mama teach us ~ how to make flower pens

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.

You will need:

scissors
a pen
old plastic flowers
flower shop tape

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.

  1. I have done these before and forget how how much fun they are. Great to give as teacher gifts too!

  2. I just love these.

  3. These are really cute! Another way to store them could be in a planter with coffee beans. I’ll have to make these with my daughter when she’s older.

  4. Love it, so cute! Thanks for the tutorial

  8. We should do this with the pens at our house. :) I keep them in a square glass vase meant for flowers anyway.

  9. I’ve been meaning to make these with my daughter because I know she will love them. Thanks for the reminder. I’m adding it to our summer to do list.

  10. Ha. I’ve seen these quite a bit before, but never thought about how to actually make them. This is really good and fun for little girls to do, I bet.
