Flower Pot Pen
This flower pot
one of my favorite crafts. They are SO easy to make, and the
result is beautiful and useful. This is just a perfect gift
for Mother's Day. The flower is actually a pen, and it sits
in a terra cotta pot of coffee beans, which looks like the dirt and
supports the pen. I love using the coffee beans because they
smell good. You can also use dried legume beans as well.
This flower pot pen looks great in the kitchen or the
office, and no more fumbling for a pen! You always know where to find
- Pen (I
used a Bic pen)
- Silk flower head
- Small terra cotta pot
blade and pliers
- Hot Glue or Super Glue
beans or dried legume beans
The very first step is to remove the end of the pen.
Make sure you use a straight pen, like Bic, not a pen where
you "click" the pen open and close and has a clip on the side.
Making this flower pot pen is extremely easy and fast to do,
but the hardest part of the whole project is removing the end of the
pen. For a Bic pen, the end of the pen is a little plastic disc that
must be removed. Wedge a razor blade in between the body of the pen and
the edge of the disc to get it to start coming out, then use pliers or
tweezers to remove the end. If it won't budge, use the razor
blade to cut off the end.
