DIY flower pens are easy to make and make fantastic homemade gifts! 

Materials needed:

  • ballpoint pens
  • floral tape
  • artificial daisy flowers
  • super glue or hot glue gun

Your ballpoint pen should look like the following photo.

Remove the cap and the plastic cap from both ends of the pen.  Save the pen cap, but discard the plastic end piece. Sometimes you can pry the end cap off neatly, but if it is difficult, cut it off with a pair of sharp scissors.  Since the floral tape and flower will cover the end, it won’t matter if it cracks or is broken on the end.

Wrap floral tape from the top of the pen all the way down to the writing point of the pen, then replace the pen’s cap.

Your artificial flower should have a stem like the following photo.  If your flower has a long stem, cut it to about 1/2 an inch long.

Put a generous drop of glue in the top of the pen, where the plastic end cap used to be.  You can use your favorite craft glue, super glue, or a hot glue gun.
