I saw the most darling clothespin heart clips at One Artsy Mama for Valentine's Day and I felt inspired to make some for St. Patrick's Day. I already had some clothespins on hand from Craftprojectideas.com so this project ended up being really simple.
Amy used washi tape to cover the front and back of her clothespins which made the whole project so easy! I was bummed when I couldn't find any washi tape that had a St. Patrick's Day feel to it, so I ended up making mine a little different.
I found a green polka-dot sheet of scrapbook paper and cut strips to fit the clothespins. Then I glued the strips onto the clothespins with modge podge. I didn't cover both sides of the clothespin, just one side. After about 15 minutes, I put a coat of modge podge on top of the paper to seal it to the clothespins.
Once the modge podge was completely dry, I got out my glitter shamrock stickers (purchased from Michael's). I layered a large shamrock with a medium sized shamrock, just like Amy did with her heart stickers. I was worried about adhering them to the clothespins as a sticker because there would be sticker residue hanging off the sides of the clothespins, so I opted to just hot glue the shamrocks to the clothespins.
They are so colorful and festive! Thanks for the awesome idea Amy!!
Stop by tomorrow and I will show you what we are going to use them for. :)
