5 Eco Clothespin Crafts

Once upon a time, a along time ago, I had a clothesline, but alas it is gone and all that remains is a bucket full of clothespins.

So what’s a girl to do with all these wooden clothespins?

Craft with them of course!

There are many simple clothespin crafts you can do. Remember the reindeer made with clothepins from elementary school? Or how about the crazy bat clothespins?

Here are a five more clothespin crafts that can be updated for adults.

1. Gift Tags

The creature comforts blog has a of couple nice tutorials for making clothespins into pretty gift tag holders or even a fancy photo holder.

2. Recipe Card Holder

The Disheroons blog has some nifty recipe card holder DIY instructions. They are so easy, even a kid can do it but it can be updated with adult style.

3. Wishing Well

I love this little clothespin wishing well.

My oldest son actually made me one when he was in elementary school .

This wishing well could easily be used as a pretty centerpiece at a wedding or party. Simply fill the inside with candies or small flowers to dress it right up.

4. Photo Holder

Martha Stewart has a lot of cute clothespin crafts including this photo hanger.

5. Memo Rack

As well as this great memo rack .

Martha Stewart has many other clothespin crafts too.
