Decorated Clothespin Magnets

Posted by Donna:

Back in the summer, one of my magazines showed a fun way to decorate clothespins and use them for refrigerator magnets. I put a lot of "bling" on these just for fun.


Assorted material

All-purpose Elmer's glue

Modge podge

Triple Thick by Deco Art (Hobby Lobby)

Peel and stick stones


First, cut the material to fit both sides of the clothespins. Glue the material on both sides with Elmer's glue. After the material has dried, put a layer of Modge Podge on top. Once that has dried, put on several layers of the Triple Thick---let each coat dry before covering with the next one. The Triple Thick needs to set for 24 hours before adding the stones. Add a magnet on the back of each one. (The pictures really don't show the stones very well; so, you have to use your imagination as to what they look like.)

This would be a great craft for kids to do--especially with the use of all the "bling." These also make really cute and inexpensive gifts or stocking stuffers.
