Happy almost Spring Y’all! I don’t know about you but I am super ready for warm weather and ton’s of sunshine. My office space literally has NO windows (insert a confused/sad look) so I wanted to bring a little “CHEER” into this space. Now before you shake your head I already know you probably have seen these flower pens in the past pop up all over the inter-webs! But what I have NEVER seen was a full spring bouquet of them. So pull up your overalls because today we are working in the garden!
I will say I am not a total fan of fake flowers but once I finished this bouquet I have a new found love for these suckers!
- Michaels new Floral Market has over 500 new blooms and freshly picked projects make this the prettiest spring ever.
- Just by swapping out a few décor pieces or adding a lovely floral arrangement can completely transform your home for the fresh, new season.
For this project the items I used to make it were really easy to find and of course very affordable!
YOU WILL NEED: Wire Cutters | Silk Flowers | Planters Bucket | Pens | Floral Tape (I used brown) | Hot Glue Gun
I should also stress that this project took about 30 minutes from start to finish!
STEP ONE: Cut your flower stems and hot glut them to the top portion of the pen.
STEP TWO: Wrap your floral tape around the entire pen. I started from the bottom and worked my way up to the top. If you have never used floral tape before make sure to give the piece you are working with a little tug to activate the glue in it. It’s that simple!
This is what they will look like when they are done. I don’t know about you but I have a feeling I will be writing more since I have these beauties sitting on my desk!
Another fun thing that I did was match the flowers up to the color of the pen. This might be a little OCD if you ask me but I always use colored pens and I figured this would make it easy when wanting a certain color! You can’t lie that is pretty snazzy, hehe!
- If you don’t know where to begin, you can always take a look at some of the fun projects on Michaels.com or the other 49 Makers’ ideas on The Glue String for to see how they personalized their crafts!
Hope you enjoyed this fun project!!! XOXO Jade
