Upcycled Paper Clip Flower Craft

 Transforming a simple paper clip into a stunning upcycled flower is a creative and eco-friendly way to add a touch of charm to your workspace or home decor. By repurposing everyday objects, you can create something unique and beautiful while reducing waste. With just a few simple steps, you can turn an ordinary paper clip into a delightful work of art that showcases your creativity and commitment to sustainability. 


  • Hot Glue Gun & One Glue Stick
  • 2 Green Pipe Cleaners
  • 1 Pen or Pencil
  • 1 Glass Gem
  • 8 Paper Clips (I used yellow)

First, you want to start by laying your paper clips around in a circle. Then you will take the hot glue gun and place a small amount of glue on the end near the center of the circle so that they are all connected together.

Now, take the glass gem and add hot glue to the back flat side. Then place the glass gem on the center of the paper clips so that it covers the middle.

Using the pipe cleaners, wrap them around your pencil or pen so that the whole thing is covered. After you have it fully covered (took me two pipe cleaners to cover this push pencil) glue the paper clip flower craft to the end where the eraser is (opposite end of what writes).

That is it! You are now finished with your upcycled paper clip flower craft. Add it to your can of pens and pencils to add a little style and color to your desk or give it to your teacher as a gift. Not only is it stylish, it is also useful for holding notes on the desk as well.
