    How To Make It

    1. To make tail that will hang off the pen's end, tie a knot in a 2 1/2-inch piece of colorful embroidery floss. Thread the floss with pretty beads and sequins.
    2. Tape the end of the floss to the pen's end.
    3. Cut a 3-foot piece of floss and tape the end to the pen's base near where you taped the tail.
    4. Wrap the floss tightly around the pen. You can stop if a pattern and add small beads or sequins onto the floss.
    5. When the pen is fully covered in floss, trim the end and glus it to the last section of wrapped floss.

    Notes:

    To create pens with bands of color, tape two colors of floss to the end of a pen. Stretch the first color straight down the length of the pen. Wrap a few coils of the second color on top of the first color. Now alternate by wrapping a few coils of the first color on top of the second. Alternate as desired.
