More Clothespin Crafts

I’m not one to hang my clothes out on the line to dry.  Not when an electric dryer is so quick and easy!  I have, however, purchased bags of clothespins to primarily use  as chip clips.  This works out wonderfully because you can get a bag of about 50 clothespins at the grocery store for around $3.  The only problem is, you get 50 clothespins.  I definitely don’t have 50 bags of chips open at one time! That is why I came up with this collection of clothespin crafts to put those extras to use.

So what to do with all of those clothespins?  Use them in a craft project of course!  I wrote an earlier post on what to do with clothespins but have since found some more ideas that would be fun to try.  And, with clothespins being so easy to get a hold of, it’s necessary to have lots of ideas to draw from!

Clothespins are great to use for photo clipboards. Whether you use mini craft clothespins or regular clothespins, its a fun way to display photos or messages. I love this rustic looking frame using the clothespins as clips to hang photos from.  I have a couple of frames that the glass has broken from.  This would be a perfect re-use of the frame and a fun way to use up a lot of the clothespins.
