Tip

  • Have annoying hot glue whisps? A blast of heat from a hair dryer will make them vanish instantly!

Step 3: Wrap the stem

Add a dab of glue to the base of the flower to attach floral tape. Tightly wrap floral tape around the pen at a slight downwards angle, overlapping the edges by a 1/4 inch.

Step 4: Finish the stem

Finish wrapping the pen when the edge of the tape is flush with the pen's cap. Add a layer of glue to seal the end and keep the tape from unwrapping.
