DIY Teacher Gift {Flower Pens}

This is my favorite kind of project..... an easy and inexpensive DIY gift!  My boys wanted to take something to their teachers on the first day of school, so I decided to make some pretty "flower pens".


All you need are some fake flowers, pens, and floral tape.


Step 1:  Cut the flower so that it is slightly shorter than the pen.


Step 2:  Wrap the tape around the pen and flower.  {I started in the middle, wrapped to the bottom, and then wrapped to the top.}


”Tip

Step 3:  Pinch the end to seal.


That's it!  Easy, cute and practical.  What teacher wouldn't love a bouquet of these pens on the first day of school?

    1. If you are having trouble, you can secure the end with a piece of tape or a little hot glue.
