Last month I shared with you an adorable clothespin magnet tutorial that was perfect to give as a teacher gift. We used scrapbook school-themed embellishments to decorate the clothespins.
Today, I want to show you how we can make a more feminine version of the magnet using paper flowers and buttons I picked up from the craft store.
I love these flowers! They are not only beautiful, but fun!
You can find many colors and designs at your local craft store.
Use Mod Podge to adhere coordinating scrapbook paper to the clothespins.
A step by step tutorial can be read here.
While your Mod Podge is drying, use your glue gun to assemble the flowers.
I layered a big flower, a little flower, and then topped it with a button.
Each step is assembled using the glue gun.
Once the Mod Podge is 100% dry, you can hot glue the flower ensemble to the front of the clothespin.
Be creative. You can make them all look them same, or a little different from one another.
Have fun with it.
At this point you can use the clothespin without a magnet to hang art work on twine as I showed you in this post.
Or, you can hot glue a magnet to the back like I did here.
Now it is perfect for hanging memos and notes on your fridge.
Either way, they are practical and useful.
A set of these would make a great gift for teacher appreciation, mother’s day, a birthday or even a wedding shower!
