Create some cute clips to use in your home, or classroom–great for hanging up artwork!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
- Household Essentials Clothespins Birch 96 pc
- Sakura Identi-Pen Permanent Marker Dual Point Black
- Acrylic paint in choice of colors
- Plaid Paint Brush Set Flat Brown Nylon 3 pc
To begin, paint the top of each clothespin the color of your choice. Let dry.
Using the fine end of your marker, begin by drawing two wavy lines next to each other across one end of the clothespin–leave a small gap between them.
Draw a straight line across the clothespin a little bit away from each of the wavy lines.
Color in the area between each vertical line, and wavy line, leaving the little colored, wavy gap between the two black areas.
Make another wrapper design block at the opposite end of the clothespin.
Draw a long, skinny oval in the middle of the clothespin–make it almost the same width as you clothspin so you have plenty of room to write.
Write the color of the “crayon” in the oval.
Create a whole box full of colors!
These cute clips are great for hanging up artwork, making a garland, or displaying flashcards in a classroom–how could you use these cute clips?
