I have had this project sitting in my computer for a long time now, so it's time to share it. I was wanting a really fun, luxurious and frilly pen to use, so this is what I made:
This is a much easier to make than the peacock pens I made. (If I could find gold duct tape that I like, I would make the peacock pens using this same method.) This would be great for a wedding to use when signing the guest book. Or use hot pink or turquoise and make the pen for a teen with a journal. There is such a vast choice of colors and designs available for duct tape.
Gather your supplies: duct tape, feather, ink pen (a cheap one is fine), pony beads, and hot glue gun
Pull the pen apart like so. You don't need the little black end cap.
Put the ink and head of the pen back into the plastic tube. Cut a piece of duct tape and wrap around the tube.
These are so much fun to write with! I feel like royalty!
