Are you looking for a fun and easy ornament to make for your Christmas tree? How about a snowflake crafted from clothespins?
You will need six clothespins to make an ornament. Be sure that your clothespins are the same size.
Remove the spring from each clothespin.
Glue each clothespin together with the flat sides facing in. Sandwich a hanger between one of the clothespins as it is glued. I used a thick gold thread leftover from another project but ribbon would also be pretty.
Glue the clothespins together to form a snowflake. I used e600 glue to create a strong bond.
Paint the clothespin ornament with white craft paint. After the ornament is dry, brush on a thin coat of Mod Podge and sprinkle with white glitter.
Don’t pack these away after Christmas, hang them from windows as a winter decoration or attach them to a wreath for your front door.
