My friend, J., gave me an adorable decorated clothespin that I use for keeping track of my blogging notes (so that I can see it many times a day). I’ve enjoyed the cute useful clothespin so much that I decided to make my own version and you may remember my DIY Patriotic Clothespins that I shared a few weeks ago. These easy DIY decorated clothespins are super easy and so much fun to make.
Here’s the clothespin that my friend, J., made for me. You can see why it makes me happy to use it.
Since the clothespins from Target already came with stripes, I simply decorated incorporating the stripes. I found that when I used Sharpie pens on the unpainted wood it bled a bit. I’d recommend using Sharpie markers on painted clothespins or use a paint pin on the unpainted wood.
For the clothespins that were already painted pink, I added stick-on rhinestones and Sharpie markers to create flowers.
It’s a super easy craft that you could definitely make with the kiddos. And these Easy DIY Decorated Clothespins are cute enough to give as gifts.
