Recipe Clothespin Holder Tutorial

6" Clothespin, patterned paper, rub-ons, stickers,decoupage, paintbrush or sponge applicator, paint

  1. Disassemble your clothespin.

  2. Paint desired color, let dry.

  3. Decorate patterned paper with rub-ons and stickers.

  4. Using decoupage, cover front with newly decorated patterned paper.

  5. Once completely dry, reassemble and your done.

*Do not get the decoupage in the crack, on the front side, where the metal prongs go. It thickens the area and the spring no longer fits right. Learned that the hard way.

This is not limited to recipe holders. Try a smaller size, 4 3/4"clothespin, and display your photos or business cards.

I had a very hard time finding the jumbo size clothespin. I eventually found it at Boxer Scrapbook Productions.

I am hosting a baby shower and we are going to play the game of not saying a word and who ever has the most pins at the end of the shower gets a prize. I am going to try this out and I will let you know how it goes.
