Flower Pens

School’s out here and it’s been a rainy June so my crafty girls are looking for things to do. Flower Pens are an easy, cheap project that can be completed in a short time.

Directions:

1.) Using your wire cutters, cut flower stem to desired length to fit pen

2.) Secure flower stem to pen by wrapping floral tape tightly around both stem and flower.  Floral tape sticks to itself.  It will be slightly sticky to the touch but that will go away after a while.

3.)  Tape bottom of flower pot so beans don’t escape.  Fill pot 3/4 full of coffee beans.  If you like the smell of coffee, this will make your pens smell wonderful.

4.) Insert flower pens into beans

Since having these flower pens on my kitchen island, I’ve never had to look for a pen.  It helps keep my busy household a little more organized!
