Today I have a fun and easy tutorial for Glitter Clothes Pins.
Now I realize that there may be some of you out there that have never owned or used a clothes pin. The day and age of using clothes pins for what they were actually designed to do is pretty much gone for most people. Hanging the laundry outside on a line doesn’t happen much anymore. Instead clothes pins have become more of a craft item. You can still find clothes pins in the laundry section of most stores. If you can’t find them there try the craft store.
I decided to dress up some clothes pins to use on my Valentine treat bags this year. It helps keep the bag closed and it looks darling too! It’s Multi-purpose. You can use this idea for any holiday, theme or season just by changing your color of glitter and what you decorate the clothes pin with.
Fortunately I have a nice stash of “stuff” I just went through my drawers and pulled out paint, glitter and whatever I had that looked Valentiney to use to embellish the clothes pins. If you don’t have a stash check out the Dollar Store, the Craft Store and the dollar bins at Target. The conversation hearts worked good too!
Just a few notes:
I only painted the top of the clothes pins, where the glitter would go.
I used Aleene’s Quick Drying Tacky Glue to glue the glitter to the clothes pins.
