One of the things that I’ve learned as I’ve gained more party planning experience is to recycle whenever possible. This is my solution for the celebration supplies and decor I’m left with after a party is over. A good example of this is the glitter clothespins I made for previous celebrations and holiday gifts. The leftovers were stashed away in a drawer just waiting to be transformed. My youngest daughter’s Spring in Paris celebration seemed like the perfect time to give them a makeover.
You also may remember these DIY Chalkboard Trays I made a few posts back. Well this DIY is even simpler. No painters tape necessary and a very short supply list! Plus they take just minutes to make.
DIY Chalkboard Clothespins
Since I was reusing existing glitter clothespins, I simply flipped them around and painted the glitter free side. I guess I can call them my multi-use clothespins. One side glitter, one side chalk.
Decorative adhesives (optional)
Apply two even coats of chalkboard paint to wood clothespins. Set aside to dry completely.
Once dry, condition by rubbing the edge of chalk across the surface of the chalkboard clothespins.
Label or tag, by adding the words/names of your choice with chalk.
Add decorative pearls or adhesives for a finishing touch.
It’s that simple!
You can also use them for decorative display, or for food and beverage labeling.
Enjoy this simple and trendy DIY and remember to check back in soon for more Posh!
