While working on my bulletin makeover I thought that adding push pins to the back of my clothes pins would be a really cute idea. I could pin them towards the bottom of my bulletin board thus being able to hang important papers from them, giving me more room on the board for other stuff. So, that’s what I did. This was probably one of the quickest, easiest projects to do. And you don’t need many supplies. In fact, everything you’ve seen posted at TGC lately has been from stuff I had kicking around the house. As I mentioned a few times before (are you tired of hearing me whine?), my crafty spending is on hold for awhile so I’m making do with what I have. Actually, it’s kind of helped me think outside the box a bit hopefully giving you guys some somewhat original ideas. 🙂
For supplies you need scrapbook paper, clothes pins (the ones with the hinges), double sided tape (or Mod Podge), thumb tacks, your hot glue gun and of course some distress ink.
1. Hot glue flat thumb tacks to one side of each clothes pin
2. Once it dries, trace the clothespin on a piece of scrapbook paper and cut out.
3. Using double-sided tape (or Mod Podge) cover one side of clothes pin with paper.
4. Distress the paper with distress ink and you’re done.
