Tips

  • The finer the fuzz on your boa, the better (and cuter) your pen will turn out. You won't want the feather-type boa; the fluff-type boas are much better to make the kind of pen you get at a store.
  • These also make good party favors for kids!
  • A boa will usually cost about $5.00 - but if you are making lots of pens, it really is less expensive than buying them.
  • When you wrap the boa around the pen's cap, wrap it tightly so that it sticks in the hot glue.

Warnings

  • Hot glue is called hot glue for a reason - it's hot! Be careful when using a hot glue gun and never let a child use one unsupervised.
