DIY Feather Pen and Holder

feather pen-11

This project is so quick and easy.  It instantly adds color to a boring writing desk!  You can make this pretty feather pen in whatever color you want.  I chose a purple feather since it’s my favorite color.  I chose white for the floral tape, but you can choose your own color for that as well.  Use a small, leftover glass container filled with glitter as a pen holder.

Attach the pen to the feather with the floral tape.  Floral tape stretches so pull it as you wrap it.

To make the pen holder, put pieces of foam in a small glass container and cover foam with glitter.  Stick the pen tip into the foam to make it stand upright.
