Voodoo Doll Pen

Voodoo Doll PenHere’s a silly little project from CraftBits: A pen with a voodoo doll topper.

It’s really nothing more than a pen with a twig crosspiece wrapped in twine. The tutorial calls for minimal decorations such as bits of cloth and beads, but there’s no reason you couldn’t get much more elaborate with your embellishments (keeping in mind that you don’t want the top of the pen to be so heavy that it’s impossible to write with). This Squiddoo lens has a nice overview of making and decorating a similar twig-and-twine doll, and this site goes into a little more detail about the symbolism of various pin colors.

These would be fun party favors or other giveaways, since they’re fast and cheap to assemble and are certainly unique.
