DIY: Functional Desk Flowers

In an effort to make my desk prettier, but still have functional things on it, I wanted to make some flower pens! These were popular when I was in school, so I'm bringing them back!

To make your own bouquet, you will need:

Silk flowers (mine are from Hobby Lobby)
Floral stem tape
ball point pens

First, cut the flowers from the bunch, removing leaves. I cut my stems to about 5" in length. They should be shorter than your pens.

Hold your flower tightly to your pen, and using your floral tape, wrap the two together. I went down the pen first, then back up to completely cover the stem.

Put some rocks or marbles in a mason jar for a sweet pen holder, or place them in your favorite container.
I left the caps on to help the pens last longer, but you can remove them if you don't want to see them.

So simple to make, but so pretty on the desk. And they're fun to write with!!
