Fun Clothespins

General Materials:

1. Clothespins (I purchased mine at Target)
2. Exacto knife

 
 

1. Fabric Clothespin

Materials:

1. Fabric
2. Modge Podge
3. Paint brush or foam brush
4. Varnish (optional)

Steps:

1. Cut the fabric to be just a bit larger than the face of the clothespin.
2. Use your brush to spread a thin layer of Modge Podge on the face of the clothespin.
3. Immediately place the fabric on top of the layer of Modge Podge.
4. After the Modge Podge has dried (about 10 minutes), use the exact knife to cut off the excess fabric.
5. Paint a layer of Modge Podge on top of the fabric.
