Recently I was offered a new job which I’ll post about soon and to celebrate the good news, I did what any sensible mid-twenty year old would do, I went shopping for desk supplies!
I immediately went to Target to see what their dollar section had to offer and found the basic essentials like mouse notepads, post it notes, pencils, pens, paperclips, etc.
I chose to go with a floral theme.
I looked for the perfect pencil cup but I didn’t find anything I liked, so I decided to make my own.
I wanted it to look like an actual flower pot.
Here is what I used:
- Floral Tape
- Artificial flowers
- Dried beans or coffee beans (I used kidney beans since they look similar to dirt but coffee beans add a nice aroma.)
- Craft scissors
- Clay pot
All these items can be found at any dollar store.
I emptied the beans into the clay pot and I cut the flowers the length of the pen.
I then began to wrap the floral tape around the pen and flower stem.
I wrapped the whole pack of pens but you can use as much or as little as you would like obviously.
Once complete, I put the caps on as far as they would go and I let them set for a few hours.
Place them in the pot with the beans and arrange them to look like flowers sprouting up!
It looks so real doesn’t it? I really loved the outcome!
