Greetings Ghoulies and Ghosties,

We’d like to start off the Halloween season with a new series, DI-WednesdaY! Get it?

We’ll be showing you how to make some easy and affordable ways to decorate your office, dorm, apartment, and home. Best of all, the total price for the four projects to be shown this month was under $15 (Thanks, Dollar Store).  No scary prices here.

Thanks to Bountiful Baskets for their sponsorship of our DI-Wednesday series. Their creative gift baskets gave us the inspiration to kick start our craftiness. Thanks, Bountiful Baskets!



Creepy Flower Pens


-          Artificial Flowers

-          Pens

-          Ping Pong Balls

-          Permanent Markers

-          Floral Tape

-          Hot Glue


  1. Use Permanent Markers to draw your own ghoulish eyeball on the ping pong balls and set aside.
  2. Hold pen and flower stem together and wrap in floral tape, be sure to stretch the tape as you go to activate the self-adhesion.
  3. Spread petals and hot glue the eyeball to the center of the pen.


There you have it! It’s a delightfully spooky flower pen to write your potions and hexes with this Halloween. If you liked our craft, leave us a comment below. We'd love to hear from you! Remember, to follow us on Facebook and Twitter, so you don't miss the next DI-Wednesday.
