Madigan made... over-sized decorated clothespins. (from the dollar store)
Yep! This is another cheap, easy and simple project!
After showing you my dollar store magnetic memo boards on Wednesday, I thought I'd show you a different dollar store project.
I spotted these big plastic clothespins at the dollar store (Dollar Tree, to be specific). I found them this past fall. I'm not sure if you will find them around today, but you make get lucky if you look.
They clearly were begging for a little 'something.'
To decorate them I used fun paper, a paper cutter, a foam brush and Mod Podge.
I originally thought about adhering the paper to the outside of the clothespins. But then I figured I could glue the paper on the inside of the clothespin. They definitely look more professional that way and are easier to keep clean.
What I love about these clothespins is that they can be positioned upright to hold a photo, a memo, a recipe. The back has magnets, so they also could go on the fridge.
(That's not our family, just a photo that came with an old frame... it was perfect for a display at the fair)
