- 1 peony flower 4.2 inch – cream
- 1 pearl and stone 26mm button
- 1 basic pen
- Material to wrap pen in – twine in this case (can be purchased at any craft or hardware store)
Add a bit of hot glue to the end of the pen and carefully wrap your pen in whichever covering you choose. Continue to add dabs of glue as you wrap the entire pen from end to end. We used twine, but you could use our 3/8th inch glitter elastic for a bit of sparkle, our fun printed elastic – great for birthdays or themed parties, or just a solid colored elastic for a basic look – perfect for matching a specific color choice.
Add hot glue to the center of your rhinestone button and quickly place it directly in the center of your flower.
Snip off the small stem on the back of the flower, and then add a dab of glue to the bottom of your flower pen topper and quickly place the flower onto the end of the pen.
If you wish, continue these three simple steps to create an entire bouquet of flower pen crafts. You could make them all the same, or mix and match flower colors and rhinestone centers to make your very own unique pen crafts.

Fill up an entire vase or a coffee cup, or simply use just one – the choices are up to you and they are seemingly endless! If you do choose to place them in a specific object, think about what you would like to put in the bottom of the vase for extra pop! Use rocks, colored beads, stones, gems, matching pearls, sand, or nothing at all – each will achieve a completely different and fun look.
