Clothes Pin Easter Wreath

What a beautiful way to turn those old fashioned clothespins into a gorgeous decoration for Easter. You can customize it for any holiday or season of the year.

Supplies

Fabric Mod Podge

 

Acrylic Paint yellow or other pastel

 

Scissors

 

Paint brush

 

50 clothes pins

 

Mod Podge

 

12" Wire Wreath Frame

 

Ribbon

Instructions

To prepare the fabric, coat it in Fabric Mod Podge. While the fabric is drying, paint all of the clothes pins with a pale yellow acrylic paint by Plaid, called “Pineapple”. The kids can get involved with the painting.

The next step involves a little measuring and cutting. You need tiny pieces of fabric that will just cover the top of the clothes pins. Cut the fabric pieces just a smidge big to make sure they will cover the whole clothes pin. The coat of Fabric Mod Podge makes it so easy to cut the fabric without it fraying. Attach the fabric to the clothes pins with more Mod Podge, use Outdoor Mod Podge if you are hanging your wreath outside.

Once everything is dry,clip the clothes pins to a 12″ wire wreath frame. This wreath took 50 clothes pins, leaving room at the top for a bow. You will need about 54 or so if you don’t want to add a bow.
