Clothespin Craft Ideas – Craft Show Best Sellers!

Hello fellow crafters! I hope all is well in your world. As for me, I have been really busy! Now that Easter is officially over, I can now concentrate on creating things to sell at craft shows this upcoming holiday season. Preparing for a craft show is a lot of work. Not only do I make my best selling craft items (which takes a LOT of time), I also like to make things that people have not seen at my booth before. In other words, I like to keep things fresh and new so that my customers will keep coming back!

These clothespins were in the clearance section at Michaels Craft Store.

For some reason, I have clothespins on the brain. I never knew there were so many clothespin crafts to choose from. I am currently working on a few projects and will be posting pictures in the next few days. Until then, below are some really great clothespin project ideas. Oh, and before I forget, Michaels Craft Store has some really nice clothespins on clearance right now. If you are currently searching for cute, yet inexpensive clothespins, you now know where to go!

Clothespin Project Ideas

Clothespin Rabbits – I know, I know, Easter is over. However, I couldn’t help but include these adorable clothespin rabbits. They are so cute! Michelle, the owner of Crafty Morning,  provides easy to follow instructions and pictures. This would be a great craft project for kids!


Clothespin Wreath – Though the wreath in the picture is obviously for Christmas, you can make this wreath for any holiday or season that you wish! The main craft supplies needed to make this wreath include a wire frame, a variety of craft paper, clothespins and various embellishments. Check out Sharing Creativity and Company for more information.

Clothespin Magnets – I am all over this idea! There are so many ways you can embellish clothespins and then turn them into magnets. Not only are clothespin magnets easy to make, the finished product is awesome. These magnets would be great “mom” stocking stuffers and most likely, a craft show best seller! Please visit Not So Idle Hands to see how these clothespin magnets were made.

Snowman Clothespins – Here is another clothespin craft that I think would sell very well at craft shows. These adorable snowmen are very easy to make! All you need is paint, glitter, fabric (for scarves) and of course, clothespins! I plan on making some of these and will post pictures once I am done!


So there you have it, four clothespin project ideas. Honestly, this is just the tip of the iceberg as there are hundreds of clothespin project ideas available. Don’t believe me, visit Pinterest and see for yourself! It really is amazing what you can make out of a simple (and inexpensive) clothespin! Well my friends, that’s it for now! Please come back soon so you can see my finished clothespin craft projects. I can’t wait to share them with you. HAPPY CRAFTING!
