Spring Potted Flower Pens

Hey there pretties! Spring is in full swing here (you could ALMOST call it summer…)!! Even if it’s not quite warming up where you are yet these Spring Potted Flower Pens are sure to brighten your day!

Since we’ve just passed Mother’s Day and all, shout out to our Momma, Lillie. This was another crafty idea that she shared with us and we then made together… You can see another Momma Lillie idea here.

Materials Needed:

  • Small clay flower pots
  • Small decorative rock
  • Fake flowers
  • Green floral tape
  • A box of pens
  • Scissors
  • Vinyl cutouts or stickers for decorating your flower pots

Start by decorating your flower pots with the Spring vinyl cutouts or stickers. I cut out several butterflies, a few different floral shapes, a few twigs and leaves all in vinyl, then just peeled and stuck them on the flower pots like stickers. Each flower pot then gets filled three quarters full of the small decorative rock.

To create your flower pens wrap a fake flower and a pen with floral tape. I used the long stemmed fake daisies left over from my wedding and just cut down the stems. Place the stem and the top of the pen together and simply wrap all the way down with the tape. The floral tape I used had to be wrapped really tight but it held the pen and flower well while looking like a green stem!

‘Plant’ your flowers in your flower pots by sticking the pens down in the decorative rock and you’re finished! Now you have pretty Spring Potted Flower Pens to display on your desk or give as a spring gift!

  1. My doctor’s office has these, and I always wondered if it was to brighten yup the place or if it was to keep people from stealing their pens (not that the pens aren’t cute, just that it would be REALLY obvious). :)

      I gave one of these to my mother in law and she said she loved it because most people didn’t realize they were pens…. So she was one of the only ones that used them guaranteeing she always had a pen on hand… hahaha
