Fun with clothespins


My sister gave me a bunch of these jumbo clothespins. I've always thought rub-ons would work well for decorating them. Yet, they have sat in my cabinet of alterables for quite some time. So I got a few out and played with them yesterday and today. Here is what I came up with.
I thought they turned out kind of fun :D

Very cute. I'm guessing that you painted them first or were they already those colors before you added the rub ons?

Those are so cute! I love how they turned out.

Thank you! Actually, they were already colored Maggie, kind of iridescent I guess. I think they came from the Target dollar bins too! :)

Okay, thought they all looked cute, but that blue winter one with snowflakes is by far the cutest! Thanks for the ideas too...I've altered mini wooden ones with paper, but not the jumbo with plastic--wasn't sure what to do.

Thank you! I used hot glue to add that sparkly fake snow to the sides on the blue one. The other two have SU tinsel, and some deforative cord.
