Today I was spending some time in my craft corner. :) I had picked up a 50 pack of clothespins from the dollar store to use in my classroom for hanging things on my bulletin boards, student work in the hallway, etc. I decided to jazz up the clothespins with some of my scrapbook paper. It is really a very simple craft and it seems like a very minimal decoration, but I think it will really add "a little sumpin' sumpin'" to my classroom. :) I just used the clothespins, one sheet of scrapbook paper, mod podge, and craft knife.
First, I placed the clothespin on the scrapbook paper. I cut around the end to get a perfect fit.
Then I used mod podge to glue to scrapbook paper to the clothespin.
Finally, I layered on another coat of mod podge on top of the scrapbook paper to seal it.
Here is a before and after shot. Now, tell me you can't say that those will add a little sumpin' sumpin' to my bulletin boards ;-) hehe...
I only covered about 28 clothespins with the black pattern. It barely used up a 1/4th of the one 12X12 piece of scrapbook paper. I'm thinking of covering the rest with a purple or blue...since those are my classroom theme colors for next year.
You should really try it!!
