I saw a video from Country Sampler Magazine where they made a clothespin wreath. I saw Lindsay the Frugal Crafter use peg stamps to stamp clothespins and decided to combine both ideas for a gift that is both inexpensive and cute.
I used two peg stamps, one is the Stars and Stripes small heart and the other is three twinkling stars. I used Night of Navy and Real Red dye inks from Stampn’ Up.
At first I stamped the clothespins together on the holder, then took them off so I could stamp the edges.
It takes roughly 62 clothespins to make this project as well as a bow of some kind.
The stamping is very fast and I think the whole project took less than thirty minutes to stamp and place the clothespins. Making the bow took more time than the rest of the project.
You will place your first clothespin on the inside two wires then the next one, place as close as you can on the second and third wires, then repeat until you have the wreath done.
I made my bow out of burlap ribbon I bought at the Dollar Tree. The total cost for the wreath was $5 (if you have stamps and ink.)
This is the video I saw that showed how to make the wreath.
This is Lindsay’s video that shows you how to stamp the clothespins. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9a2Yg3_Bl1Y&t=1s
