How to make a flower pen just like you see in offices where you need to sign in or leave feedback.

I think this fairy wand broke when it ran out of magical wishes, but instead of throwing it away, I decided to turn it into a flower pen that Miss M could use.

Unfortunately, it would have been all but impossible to repair the wand without pulling it apart completely.  So, I decided to re-purpose it.

Whenever I'm in my office Marisol likes to come in, borrow pen and paper and lay down on the floor to draw next to me.  I thought it might be nice if she had her own very special pen to draw with whenever she comes in.

To transform her beautiful wand into a pen this is what I did:

  • Cut the broken wood attached to the flower to about 1.5cm long.
  • Remove the end of a pen.
  • Wrap ribbon around the length of the pen, gluing it at each end
  • Using a hot glue gun, apply glue to the wooden end on the flower and insert it into the end of the pen.
  • Tie pretty ribbons over the glued section.

I love seeing pretty pens like this in doctor's offices and other places where we need to sign in or there's a book to sign.

This is one of my standard little things I make for friends. I just buy silk flowers and I love to use chiffon ribbon on a see-through pen.
