The Hair Cuttery that I go to has these pens that have flowers on top and I always wanted to make one for myself. At my recent trip to the dollar store I ran across the flower arranging tape they use to create the pens, so I decided it was high time I make some flower pens of my own. Of course, I couldn't just stop at just attaching a flower to my pen. I had to embellish them to "Princess Zerila Bling- Bling" status.
Here are the items you are going to need:
1. Artificial Flowers
2. Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
3. Craft String of Pearls with Flat Backs
6. Black Permanent Marker
7. Flower Arranging Green Tape ( the tape has the stickiness of a post-it note)
8. Embellishments- I used sequins and flat back gems.
Choose the flower you wish to use and cut the flower off leaving one inch of stem to work with. Remove as many leaves as you wish to use for your pen and place them underneath the flower. Once you have arranged how you want your flower and leaves to look, using the green tape, secure them together. Do not cut off tape!
Pen #3 (My favorite)
This one is a bit tricky. First , using the black permanent marker, you would need to draw a line that swirls around the pen starting from the top and continues swirling down to the bottom.
Next, using the hot glue gun, glue on the sequins(I used clear) to cover up the black line.
