gussied-up clothespins!




It seems I use clothespins for more than keeping sheets on the clothesline!  They come in handy for chip-clips, bookmarks, keeping recipes together, and generally corralling any paperwork I have. Somehow all that paperwork seems a little less messy and looks just a bit better with a cute clothespin clip on it!

These are oh-so easy to make...just gather your favorite scrapbook paper, scissors, and a little decoupage glue (Mod Podge) and you're ready to begin. Simply cut paper to fit the tops of clothespins, then secure in place with a bit of Mod Podge.  Once the paper is secure, brush a thin coat of Mod Podge over the paper to give it a protective coating...just let dry.

It couldn't be easier!

So tell me; what will you use your gussied-up clothespins for?

Happy Friday...enjoy the long weekend!

  1. What a great idea. We use clothespins for chip clips, too. These are so cute and a great use for all that scrapbook paper I'll never use. Thinking about giving these as little Christmas gifts, too.

    1. That's a terrific idea...thinking ahead to gift giving! They could clip onto a card or recipe easily...I may do that myself, thanks for the idea!

  2. These are great! Wondering if these would sell in our booth at the antiques mall, might have to make up a few. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Oh I'm sure they'd sell - clip them onto a little card, maybe slip into a clear bag and tie on a ribbon. Who wouldn't want them as a little gift (dare I say it?) or stocking stuffer. Let me know how it turns out!
