Recycled Crafts: How to Make a Flower Pencil

March 29, 2013 at 3:34 pm Leave a comment

Hello everyone, it’s Friday, hope you’re ready for another craft tutorial! This week we’ve got more decorating options for your writing instruments, to continue from last week’s theme of pen toppers. You could easily glue these tiny, fun cutouts onto a pen cap just as well as onto a pencil, but we liked the green shade of the pencil used.

Supplies:

Pencil

Paper

Flower punch

Hot glue

Step 1:

Punch out about 25 flowers. We used 5 flowers per row on the pencil. Lightly bend the flower petals up to prepare for gluing.

Step 2:

Putting a dab of hot glue on the back of each flower center, begin to place them along the metal part of the pencil, just below the eraser. Be sure to keep the petals sticking out perpendicular from the pencil. Continue in rows until you like how it looks. We stopped at 5 rows.

Step 3:

All done! Now you’re writing in style.
