Today I am sharing how to make decoupaged clothespins. This is a super fast, easy craft that yields a great end result. You also get to use up some of your paper scraps. My favorite kind of project!

- Scraps of coordinating paper
- Mod Podge
- Paint brush
- Optional: Glitter glue, rhinestones, flowers, or any other small embellishments
I chose coordinating papers out of my scraps stash. I chose some that were green and some that were pink.
Step one: Trace your clothespin on the wrong side of your paper. Do this twice and cut out your paper.
Step two: Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to one side of the clothespin. Apply your paper right side up on the clothespin and smooth out any bubbles. Apply another thin layer of Mod Podge over the top of the paper. Allow to dry.
Note: I found it was easiest to do one side at a time since I was doing multiple clothespins. By the time I got to the last clothespin, the first was dry enough to do the opposite side. I then laid them on their sides to dry on wax paper.
Step three: Trim any excess paper around the edges, if necessary.
Step four: (optional) Add glitter, rhinestones, flowers or any other kind of coordinating embellishment to finish the clothespins off.
These make great gifts and can be used for all sorts of things. I typically use them as fancy “chip clips” and made some to coordinate with my kitchen. You could also attach a magnet to one side to keep them within easy reach on the fridge. Below are some I made from two different types of patterned papers.
