SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Ballpoint pens
  • Green embroidery floss (each skein yields 2 pens)
  • Faux flowers and greens (stems removed)
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Tweezers (optional)
  • Small flower pot (painted if desired)
  • Small piece of white foam
  • Floral moss or basket filler

                                                        

DIRECTIONS:

  • Attach one end of embroidery floss to end of pen with hot glue (use tweezers for safety).
  • Once cool, begin winding floss evenly down length of pen, sliding strands together for tight fit.
  • If desired, clusters of faux leaves can be added part way through. Simply slide on leaves and continue winding.
  • Once the pen handle is completely covered, secure floss with another dot of hot glue.
  • Glue flowers to top.
  • Cut foam to fit snugly into flower pot and camouflage with moss or filler.
  • Insert “bouquet” of flower pens firmly.
