12 Days of Christmas Pinspiration-Day Five

Another day of the "12 Days of Pinspiration" from South North South. Day Five!

Christmas Clothespins!


What you'll need:

Scissors
Large and Small Clothes Pins
Masking Tape in clear
Glitter, in different colors
Small toys
Glue gun
Mode Podge
Small paint brush

Instructions:

Cover the sides of the clothes pins with the masking tape that you don't want glittered and use the scissors to cut the sides of the tape to the width of the clothes pin (this is sort of acting as painters' tape).  Using the small paint brush, brush a small amount of Mod Podge onto the flat surface of the clothes pin.  Sprinkle your glitter colors over the clothes pin where you painted the Mod Podge and tap to remove any excess.  Allow to dry overnight and apply a second coat of Mod Podge to seal the glitter into place.  Allow to dry for several hours.

Once your Mod Podge is dry, take a small toy and hot glue it to the large end of the clothes pin and allow to dry completely.  And you're done!  These glittered clothes pins can be used for ornaments on your tree, or added to the top of packages for a fun, festive, addition to your wrapping.



Eco-Tip:  Share equipment and tools with friends and neighbors instead of buying new each time.  Start a neighborhood share project in your area to help cut down on the manufacturing of new products.  To learn more visit, The Simple Dollar.  For this and other tips on going green visit, The Earth and Me Go Green.
