So I have this problem.
Whenever I sit down at my desk and reach for a pen they are all M.I.A.
Of course NOBODY KNOWS WHERE THEY ARE AT.
I suspect they just "POOF! disappear" right?
My kids keep taking them and not putting them back!
I get it, they are doing their homework but come on kids! Cant you leave JUST ONE for me?!
So to fix this problem I decided to have pens that they didn't want to take. Or should I say couldn't take. Because if they took my pretty pens it would be pretty easy to figure out who did it!
I made some feather pens! You know, like the silk flower pens?
I love feathers (or anything fluffy, ruffley, shiny, glittery and pretty for that matter) and this fall I have been finding ways to use these cute little feather sticks from Michaels.
First I took a feather stick, some black florists tape & a plain old Bic pen.
I held the feather stick to the side of the pen and wrapped the florists tape around and around until I got to the bottom of the pen. (I know, I know...I need a mani really bad!)
This little project took me about 5 minutes and I think they look really cute!
I plunked them in this old candle holder from Dollar Tree with some glass beads to stand them upright (FYI: You can also stand your makeup brushes up in one of these candle holders with beads).
I love them and they look really cute on my desk.
And so far I haven't had to search for a pen in awhile!
