Steps to Make a Stylus Pen at Home

  • Step 1: Remove the ink refill from the pen and open it from the upper part and the lower part.
  • Step 2: Take the wire and measure it with the body of the pen. You need to take the length of the wire more than the body of the pen.
  • Step 3: Now remove the plastic coating from the wire with the help of scissor and pull out a string of copper wire from it.
  • Step 4: Put the copper wire on both the ends of the pen from outside and then put the caps over the wire so that it will not come out from the body.
  • Step 5: Take some cotton and roll it according to the instruction given in the video. Roll the cotton with the help of water and put it at one end of the pen.
  • Step 6: Close the lower cap ensuring that some part of the cotton would be outside the hole of the cap.
  • Step 7: Remove the extra cotton from the upper part.

Voila! Your Stylus pen is ready for use and now you can draw some amazing paintings with the help of it.

List of other materials you can use 

  • Cotton bud or Q-tip

A cotton bud can come in handy while designing a stylus pen. You can replace the messy cotton with a manageable cotton bud. 

You can put it inside the pen to create a soft nib for your pen. You can then follow the above process as usual. 

  • Arrowhead Eraser

An assorted arrowhead eraser can also play an efficient role in the nib of the pen. You can include a pencil eraser as a stylus pen. You just need to attach it to a sharp object to keep it steady.

It holds on ink for a lasting time too. It has less absorbency property so it will last longer than its cotton alternatives.
