Hey there, if you’re just joining my blog, Mr. Man and I are tackling my laundry room by turning the dingy furnace room into a laundry haven. While Mr. Man is building the cabinet for my laundry room I thought this would be the perfect time to create some pretty accents. Yesterday I showed you how I made a really easy and pretty jar to catch all that loose change we find in our kids’ pockets. Today I want to show you how to add a pop of color to a laundry room while using clothespins as inspiration?
I love this wreath and it was a lot of fun to make, let me show you. You can even get the kids involved with this one!
You will need:
List of Supplies
- Paper trimmer (I use this one)
- Two pieces of cardboard (I used a pizza box lid)
- Something to make a large circle (even a dinner plate will do),
- A sponge brush to apply the glue (Here are the ones I use)
- An Exacto knife (This is similar to the one I have)
- Needle-nose pliers (Try these)
- Scrap paper (use at least 6 patterns)
- Lots of clothespins (I used around 70 and found this pack on Amazon for $2.44 for 50)
- Decorative accents
The next four steps are as easy as 1, 2, 3 and 4. Trace, cut, glue and combine.
Next, take your scrap paper and cut strips ¾” (inch) wide.
Then measure them 3” (inches) long.
Now for the fun part and a great way to get the kids involved. GLUE! I found if you put the glue on the clothespins first it is easier to line up the paper.
They should look like this when you’re done. Just a quick note to let them dry for a bit before creating the wreath.
Let’s put it all together.
Just a tip, I made a point to NOT line up the clothespins to give it some dimension. Turn it around and add wire to hang your wreath by twisting the wire around the cardboard circle to create a hanger.
It just needs the final touch…
There you have it!! Laundry Pizazz! Let me know if you love this as much as I do and if you created your very own clothespin wreath I would love to see it.
Till next time,
