Made It Monday: Clothespins!!!

Hey guys, how's it going?

I'm back for the next edition of Monday Made It!!



That's right, I'm linking up again with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics!!


Soooo.......I know you've seen all of these wonderful pins of people decorating clothespins!!

I first saw it from Greg over at Kindergarten Smorgasboard.

So, being the crafting diva that I am, (yeah right!), I decided that I was going to attempt it!!



At this point, I decided that I wanted to make two different kinds, 

one with scrapbook paper, and one with glitter!!

So, I started out with some good, old-fashioned clothespins.  


Then, I got some pretty scrapbook paper,


and I traced the outline of the clothespins. 


Then, I cut them out.


Then on to using mod podge to lay it down, so to speak, lol!!


Now, before I mod podged on top of this, I started on the glitter pins.

I had my trusty glitter, and separate bowls (I did purple and black).


I put some mod podge on top of the clothespin, and poured glitter on it

over the bowl to minimize the mess.


Ok, here we are so far, everything is ready to be mod podged again!!


It's important to mod podge over the top of the glitter, because you know how glitter wants to go

home with everyone!! This will ensure that it (or most of it anyways) stay in place!!

I did learn that it is important to kind of sponge some of it back off, otherwise, it will sit there

looking like a big pool of glue!! (Lesson learned the hard way!!)

I also mod podged over the scrapbook clothes pins. 


Once everything was dry, they looked like this!! 

DISCLAIMER: I might have gone overboard taking pictures of the finished project,

ummmm.........it went something like a photo shoot!!!!

You were warned!!!!



Man, see how some of that darn purple got on my black?!?!? Use more than one brush, lol!!

  2. Those look awesome! I love the idea. I wonder if it would be easier to use the Modge Podge spray when finishing them. I may have to try it and let you know!
