Maybe your hand cramps up when you're Diamond Painting. Or perhaps you're just bored with your growing collection of standard-issue double-sided pens. Whatever the case may be, it's never a bad idea to get creative with your Diamond Pen!
We asked members of the PWD Support Group to show us their most creative DIY Diamond Pens - here's some awesome inspiration for all you DIY folks out there!
7. This converted souvenir ballpoint pen
Melissa Ann says, "I converted my first ink pen into a Diamond Painting Pen. Was not as difficult as I expected."
PRO TIP: Many people use old ballpoint pens when creating their homemade Diamond Pens. To minimize hand cramping, use as thick a pen as possible (the thicker the better!). Bonus points for a nice rubber grip around the outside.
