Idlewife has a tutorial up on making wrapped feather gel pens. She just took the inside of a gel pen and attached it to a feather by wrapping in the same color thread. These would make cute party favors or desk decorations. Or a really wild (and useful) headdress, if you could figure out how to rig it.

  1. as a teacher I’m always looking for ways to keep students from leaving with all my pens. I’ve seen fake flowers, but i like this look waaaaaay better. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Carrie Ann, I think you might find you’ll lose MORE pens this way. These are really cool!!! I could see them being great quill alternatives for a Harry Potter-themed birthday party.
