Hello there! Thank you for stopping by. The last post I wrote highlighted some of my favorite clothespin crafts that I found on Pinterest. I cannot express enough how much I love Pinterest. It is such a great place to search for new ideas and to see what other crafty people are up to! Anyhoo, in that post I also mentioned that I was working on several clothespin crafts and that I would post pictures when I was able. Well, today is your lucky day!
From what I have heard from other “craft people” these magnets sell really well at craft shows (I hope so…guess I will find out this winter!). I plan on selling single clothespins, as well as, packs of four. As for pricing, I’m not sure yet….still need to figure that out.
These magnets were so easy to make and dare I say…adorable! I used clothespins that were already painted when purchased, however, I also painted some of them myself. At first I was worried that it would be difficult to put the pins back together after they were painted, however, I found THIS “how to” video and it was a breeze. I will say that I had to do some painting touch-ups after the pins were reassembled. For some of the pin magnets, I attached miniature wooden shapes that I painted myself…while others I embellished with flowers and crystals. By the way, AC Moore has a “discount bin” full of different types of embellishments. The embellishments that I purchased were 10 for $1 (can’t beat that!). I also decorated some of the clothespins with washi tape. I love that stuff!
Below are several pictures of the clothespin magnets that I have been working on. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! Have you ever made something out of clothespins? If so, leave a comment! I’d love to know what you have been working on. Well, that’s it for today. As always, HAPPY CRAFTING!
