Here is another easy-to-make Christmas DIY. CLOTHESPIN SNOWFLAKES are one of the prettiest ornaments I’ve come across in a while! Who knew that spring-type clothespins could make great snowflakes!!! I dug into my clothespin bag (yes, I still hang clothes on the line… country girl, remember) and used a handful for this so so easy Christmas project!
I just thought these little (in real life they are not so little) snowflakes were so simple and just beautiful! And so easy to make!
I’m going a little crazy and making them by the dozens… to hang on my tree, to put on gifts and to tuck into Christmas arrangements and wreaths.
CLOTHESPIN SNOWFLAKE ORNAMENTS
Here’s what you will need
spring-type clothespins, taken apart
white craft paint
glue (I used super glue and hot glue)
- Gather 6 spring-type clothespins for each snowflake
- Pull the clothespins apart and discard the springs
- Paint each clothespin “leg” white and immediately add glitter
- Glue two flat sides of the clothespins together making 1 arm of the snowflake. I used Super Glue to adhere them together. Worked great!!!
- Glue 6 snowflake arms together attaching the sides at the top of the clothespin, as shown. I used hot glue for this.
- Using a burlap tread, make a loop and attach the ends to the back of the snowflake.
Easy and so pretty… and not rocket science! Even if you are not very crafty you could make these!!!!
