Materials Required:

A hex nut (This)
Candle holder

Step 1:

Picture of

I used a spare hex nut that was lying around to make this pen stand. The diameter of the hex nut was 10mm.  

Apply glue to the inside of the hex nut and tightly wrap a ribbon around the nut. Cut off the excess ribbon and seal the end of the ribbon firmly to the inside of the hex nut with glue. 

Step 2:

Picture of

I used a glass candle holder as the base for my pen stand. I glued the ribbon cover hex nut into the candle holder. 
You can also make a few more of these ribbon covered hex nuts and glue them onto a block of wood or a tray to hold more pens.  

DIY pen stand is ready!
