As I mentioned, we just had our baby shower. Our fabulous mamas hosted the blessed event and it was everything we thought it would be and more! When we all got together to discuss the theme and ideas and such, I had one small request. I really wanted to be a part of the crafting and décor making. I myself have hosted baby showers for several friends over the years and I LOVE all of the creativity that is involved in celebrating the arrival of baby! Luckily our moms agreed to let me help and from there the creative juices began to flow.
I’ve always loved the idea of getting “mommy advice” from experienced moms so I thought that rather than just leaving pens on the tables with advice cards, we could make flower pens. If you too like this idea and want to do the same, here’s how :)
- Regular ballpoint pens
- Floral tape
- Silk flowers
- Wire cutters
- Glue gun & glue sticks
1. Cut your flowers off the stem, leaving about 1 inch.
2. Remove (and discard) your pen lid. Hold your flower next to your pen and use your floral tape to attach your flower to your pen.
3. Because floral tape can look translucent, wrap the tape around the pen to the ballpoint and then back up again to the flower. Once you get to the flower, just rip the tape and press it against your pen until it sticks.
4. And that’s it! You’re done!
