5 Clothespin DIY Projects

Clothespins are relatively cheap ($2-$4 / bag) and so perfect for crafting! We found six creative and practical ways to use clothespins in your next crafting project. Today we’re giving you instructions on five projects. Check back on Friday for a step-by-step photo tutorial of our favorite clothespin project.

For this spooky project, tie coordinating ribbon to colored clothespins (or spray paint the classics) and embellish with haunting stickers. Read more on Nap Time Journal’s blog.

Secure a Boutonniere with a Clothespin | via Bridal Musings
Keep the pins away from your groomsmen or homecoming date by attaching the flower to a clothespin first. Secure the flower to the flat side of the clothespin using floral tape. Learn more from Bridal Musings

Hang Holiday Cards in Garland | via Martha Stuart
Spruce up the clothespins first by covering the visible side with scrapbook or wrapping paper. Clip the clothespins to a wide ribbon strung along your bannister garland. Then clip in the holiday cards to display. Read more from Martha Stuart.

Create a Decorative Mirror | via Design Sponge
Clip clothespins around a circular mirror and secure at the clip using hot glue. Add a photo hanger on the back of the mirror to mount on the wall. Loop a ribbon at the top to add a pop of color and to mask your hanging method. Learn more details from Design Sponge.

Hang up a Clothespin Lamp | via Young House Love
Create a cylinder using wire fencing. Clip clothespins in a desired pattern around the wire material. Hang around a bare bulb to illuminate to room and draw the eye upward. Get more details from Young House Love.
