Flower Pen – Mixed Medium

I was in search of a project to do and went looking through my idea files. I came across this flower pen picture my Bff had sent me some years ago.
The flower pen is made of silk flower/leaves, floral tape, ink pen, clay pot, some filler and what appears to be a grassy filler.flwrpen08It seemed an easy craft, but I didn’t have any floral tape nor a small clay pot. I thought about it for a second and realized that I could use polymer clay to wrap the pen in and sculpt a clay pot and stone fillers.

It was fun to make. My clay pot isn’t perfect and neither is the clay wrapped pen, but I think it turned out okay for my first ever flower pen.flwrpnI was going to put some green raffia over the top of my sculpted stones for fake grass, but I liked the look of the stones and decided not to cover them up.

What do you think?
Should I cover the stones or leave them bare?

Happy Crafting!

      I enjoy using my supplies I have on hand. That’s why I rarely throw supplies away. I may need them for little projects.
      I used the basic instructions on the Sculpey web site for putting the clay on the pen and baking it.
      I agree, Great minds 🙂


  1. I like the stones, less mess! Raffia might smooth the transition from the pot to the flower. You are so creative–and made your own pot! I see flowered pens regularly in offices, grocery store, etc. They are less likely to be carried off.
