DIY - Brilliant Biros

A really quick and easy DIY today for sprucing up your collection of boring old pens.  You might remember my DIY for Pretty Pens back in June. Well this is a pretty similar concept. I will show you the reason I made these in a post later in the week.

  • Clear biros with removable middle bits!
  • Nail Varnish
Unscrew the biro and remove the middle piece that holds the ink.  Take your nail varnish and paint the inner tube. You will probably need more than one coat so you will probably want to find something to hold it while it dries. A piece of blue tac will do nicely.

Then, once it is totally dry, just put your pen back together, and that's it! Now you can have super pretty pens that match your nail varnish on any given day. Hurrah!

  1. I love how you've made an everyday object so special! Great idea

  2. What a brilliant idea! I've been looking for simple ideas for Christmas presents for my family and friends, and sets of pretty up-cycled pens sounds just brilliant! (And my extensive collection of nail-polish helps!)
