How to Make a Dollar Tree Clothespin Wreath
How do you make a wreath out of clothespins? How many clothespins does it take to make a clothespin wreath? I bet the crafters out there are feeling very curious about these questions. Well, you are in luck because I am going to answer them in detail! I love to craft, so this was the only logical next section of this article. First, let’s discuss supplies.
- Bag of at least 60 clothespins
- A Wire Wreath Form(with multiple wires)
Now, this is going to be a super personal wreath…because I cannot tell you how to decorate it. You need to decide that for yourself and then pick some decorations that will fit your theme. I recommend painting your clothespins because it makes it look a lot more put together and interesting.
Also, make sure you are adding more decorations like bows your little flowers to help it feel extra cute. Okay, let’s do this.
Step One: Paint Your Pins
The first two steps in this process are probably the most time-consuming, so I like to recommend putting on an audiobook or podcast to help it feel less monotonous.
After you have come up with your theme, roughly estimate how many clothespins you are going to need by laying out a few around your wreath form. Once you have a broad idea, you can start painting. Your wreath will need anywhere from 25 to 60 clothespins to be fully covered.
If you have a specific painting pattern in mind, make sure you are carefully planning where they will go. This is a simple activity, but you do need to be very mindful of what you are doing to be successful.
Step Two: It’s Pinning Time
I love this kind of wreath because it is just so simple! All you really have to do is clip your clothespins all around the wreath form until your wreath is complete. I like to do two different rows to help bring some dimension to this piece.
That is really all there is to it, but if you want to make sure that your pins are extra secure, you can put some hot glue onto them before you clip.
Step Three: Decorate
Lastly, you get to add more decorations(if this is something you were planning on doing). I like to add a simple bow because it pulls the whole thing together.
That’s it…you have created your very own clothespin wreath…how amazing is that! The sky is the limit. There are so many other kinds of wreaths you can make now.
My hope is that by the end of this article, you have either purchased a clothespin wreath or you are planning on making one yourself. This decor item is just too cute not to!
Admittedly, I did both. But there is no shame in that! I really think you are going to enjoy your new wreath. Every time I see mine, I can’t help but smile. And isn’t that the point of decorating our homes? To bring us happiness?
If you want to check out some more unique wreath ideas, then you are in the right place. Like I said in the beginning…I am kind of wreath obsessed. So naturally, this is not the only wreath-themed article I have created. Honestly, I have lost count of how many I have made! But you can begin with this one.
