Handmade Flower Pen

This is such an easy project to make, just in time for Valentine's Day and, not too far behind, Mother's Day.

The children of an office colleague gave me this one. It lives in a flower vase on my desk, to be used only on special occasions. I moved it to the window to photograph.

To make, you will need silk flowers of your choice; writing pens and tape. Green floral tape is available at most craft shops but as you can see from my pen, masking tape will do, too.

You can even add a little white silk sprig to make it look a little more like a flower bouquet. And you can never go wrong with roses!

The most challenging part is getting the tape wrapped around the flowers and pen.

Once wrapped, add a flower vase, and a card. Or not.

Have you tried to make one?
