Beaded Wrapped Pens

Designed by Treasure It
Skill Level: Beginner
Estimated Time: 10 minutes

Plain pens can be transformed into funky, cool wrapped pens by using Kreinik metallic threads. Kids love wrapping pens! This is a great activity for camp, fundraisers, school, or church groups.

Materials needed:

  • pens (rounded pens are best)
  • Kreinik #12 Braid in your choice of colors (we used 006, 014HL, 056F, 054F, 055F)
  • Diamond Beadlets®
  • 1" Treasure Tape roll
  • rhinestone (optional)

Instructions:

1. Simply cover your pen lengthwise using the 1" Treasure Tape.
2. Peel off red lienr, then start wrapping your thread around the pen.
3. If sticky tape is still exposed, dip into Beadlets to cover.
4. Add a rhinestone to the top to give it a finished look.

Tips: When applying "stringy embellishments" like ribbon, embroidery threads and fibers to double-sided Treasure Tape, you can easily pull up the design and start again if you make a mistake or want to try a different design. When using red liner Treasure Tape it is best to cut with Teflon® coated scissors -- or use adhesive remover to wipe the residue off your
scissors.
