I was browsing Pinterest and found this Clothespin Snowman idea. They are so adorable! Before I clicked down to the source, I started to think of how I could use them and came up with stringing them on brown twine to hold Christmas cards. (Great minds think alike because she suggested the same thing!!) After seeing her example, I decided to also make some glittered clothespins for some added sparkle. I made a run to Michaels for supplies and... Voila! A super-cute garland for my house. I think it turned out great!!
Step 1: I spray-painted all the clothespins white, making sure I got the front, back and sides.
Step 2: I used a small brush to paint the grooved part of the clothespin black to make the hat.
Step 4: I used a small brush to draw on the carrot nose with orange paint.
Step 5: I used the cotton swab again to stamp the mouth and buttons.
Step 6: I made red-ribbon scarves and glued them on using tacky glue.
Step 7: I covered another set of clothespins with tacky glue on one side and covered in glitter.
Step 8: After everything was dry, I clipped the pins onto twine and pinned the cards.
