How to Decorate Clothes Pins

How to Decorate Clothes Pins
My little boy loves to draw and he has the largest collection of art work that I have 
ever seen.  It's important to me to show my little guy how much I value his work, 
because in the long run it builds up his self confidence. 

I love to display his creativity. 
I think it is beautiful and he always puts a smile on my face
when he draws something especially for mommy.
In previous posts I gave ideas on how to display your child's art work.

Today I'm passing on more ideas with a little creative tutorial 
on decorating clothes pins to hang art or whatever your heart desires.

You will need the following:
  1. Scissors
  2. Decorative tape (ex: washi tape, fabric tape, scrapbook tape...)
  3. Wooden clothes pins 

Are you familiar with this tape?  It's Smash by K & Company. 
I just love their products.  You can find them in your local craft store.
1. Measure the amount to be placed over the 
clothes pin by placing the pin over the tape.
2. Cut and press over the pin.
3.  You have the choice to either cut off the remaining tape 
or press it in, covering the sides of the pin as seen below.
Use these cute pins to hang your children's art work and create a wonderful display.
Hope that you enjoy and Happy Crafting!

  2. Cute idea! I use clothes pins all of the time. Once in a while they get hit with a coat of chalkboard paint to help me organize, but this seems so much faster. Plus I don't have to wait for anything to dry!

  3. I made the exact same ones, with the exact same tape, two weeks ago! I was not pleased with how they came out, but I also realized I was doing it with just my fingers while hanging my display (I did it for an impromptu display feature for my flea market). I like the idea of using the scissors to indent in the crease of the pin. I will try again, this time perhaps at a table. with scissors!

    1. I had the same problem the first time. I used my fingers and it just came out cheap looking. My second try I used the scissors and I was pleased. Hope your second try comes out better.
