DIY Fancy Clothes Pins

Good morning! Hope you all had a great weekend! We wanted to start Monday off with a little fun DIY project.

All you need are wooden clothes pins, decorative paper, ribbon, embellishments of your choice, hot glue gun and scissors.

Just trace the size of the clothes pin onto your decorative paper and cut it out. Or if you prefer cut a piece of ribbon that will cover the clothes pin. Then just hot glue the paper or ribbon right onto the clothes pin.

To embellish you can either make a bow out of ribbon or a rosette out of paper. (DIY, instructions here) Add a little crystal in the center and your ready to glue it on to the top of the open end of the clothes pin.


So easy right! These are just really cute to be used so many different ways. You can use them to hang a letter garland at a birthday party, or use them to hang photos on a clothes line at a shower or party! You can even just use them to clip a baggie closed, or put glue a magnet on the back and you can use it as a clip on your fridge. These would be really cute to add to a "house-warming" gift basket as well!

We made a shower gift in July for a little boy and had done this.
