Crafting With Clothespins


On my last blog post I mentioned that I had been making clothespin wreaths.

Here is how I made them.

Supplies needed: 
Clothespins (approximately 100)
18 inch Metal wreath form
Spray paint
Ribbon

This is an easy craft with stunning results.
My wreath form was green. I spray-painted it the color of my choice (yellow). You can also leave it green. Then I attached my clothespins to my clothesline and spray painted them.

Let dry thoroughly.
For my project, I painted 52 blue and 48 yellow.
Attach the clothespins to the wreath form by simply clipping them on the inner three rings.


When put on properly, it will be a snug fit. No gluing is needed.



Make a bow and attach. I cut out and painted a WV for mine. I attached the bow with floral wire and glued on the WV embellishment.


Use your imagination and craft a wreath for all occasions.



I love making these and they are fairly easy to make. 
You could make them for every season - Fall, Christmas, Winter, Easter, Spring, and Summer.
 
Happy Crafting.
