Paper Rose Clothespins 1

I recently made these for my friend Brittany’s birthday…I thought these would be fun for her office.  I also use clothespins as chip clips and to hold notes on the fridge.

What you need: Wood clothespins, assorted papers, paper flowers, small magnets or magnet tape, hot glue, a sponge brush and Mod Podge.

Clothespins Supplies

Step 1: Cut your paper strips to size.

Step 2: Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to both sides of each clothespin. Stick a piece of paper onto the Mod Podge on each side of the clothespin and seal with another light coat of Mod Podge.

Step 3: Once the Mod Podge is dry, hot glue a paper flower on the front, and a magnet on the back of each clothespin.

  22. Ooh, I love this project!! The flowers turn the covered clothespins from “cute” to “absolutely gorgeous”!! I like Barb’s suggestion about clipping the pins to recipes (how about clipping one to a set of handmade note cards?) and Erlene’s about using thumbtacks instead of magnets. My mom is in a nursing home, and she saves every card and photo that she receives… needless to say, she is running out of room on her bulletin board. But by pinning a few beautifully embellished clothespins to the board, she can clip several of her keepsakes together–and make room for more cards and photos! (And “dress up” her board at the same time!)

    Thank you for sharing this lovely idea. xoxo

  23. These are absolutely beautiful! I have all of the things that are needed here already, and I can’t wait to get started! Thanks for sharing!
