Stocking Stuffers

Are you searching for a quickie office gift, teacher gifts, secret sister gifts, or stocking stuffers? These are super fast, easy, and everyone likes to get them! You can whip out a bunch of these fuzzy pens in about an hour. The thing I like best is that if you put the long loop on there, they can be necklaces for work, or a lanyard to your date book, purse or tote bag. Cheap, too! Use recycled pens and leftover yarns and Adornaments® and some double-sided tape, that's all.

I'm headed to the mall to find the perfect party dress since we are having an "After Party" in Tulsa next weekend to celebrate our wedding. Stay tuned....

Fuzzy Pens
designed by Pattie Donham


Assorted Adornaments® Fibers (fuzzier is better)
Recycled Ball Point Pens (without the cap)
Terrifically Tacky Tape®

1. Stick Terrifically Tacky Tape® from the point to the end of the pen and cut. Press the tape to insure the adhesive is secure to the pen. Repeat on the other side of the pen for complete coverage.
2. Cut 36 inches of fiber or yarn for the necklace.
3. Peel off the tape's clear layer. Attach the ends of the necklace to the end of the pen.
4. Starting at the tip of the pen, wind more fibers around the pen all the way to the end. Trim with scissors.
