Last week I shared a post Organize Your Home Office with Wooden Clothespins and Jacquard and well, you know how it is… once you have a bunch of supplies out you may as well see how many things you can come up with using the supplies you have out.
You know, just to delay the time when you have to start cleaning up the HUGE MESS you just made.
Well, sort of for that reason but also just so you can keep trying new things and testing out new ideas. Or in this case, new uses.
In the process of playing with my paints and dyes from Jacquard I found I could dye clothespins with Dye-Na-Flow and get some really vibrant, luscious color but still see the grain of the wood. I LOVED the effect.
Add some Lumiere 3D and some gems and you get color, texture AND some sparkle.
It’s easy to see that a clothespin that looks like a party could actually be a part of a party favor, or gift tag, or gift bag embellishment. Right?
To create your party clothespins you only need a few supplies:
Take clothes pins apart and paint them with the Dye-Na-Flow using the foam brush.
Let dry. Reassemble the clothespins.
Add a good dollop of Lumiere 3D to adhere gems or other jewelry and scrapbooking supplies. Let dry.
Attach to a gift, gift bag or party favor.
That’s all there is to it!
