This year I decided to make a card holder that I can hang on the wall to show off my new treasures. Clothespins seemed like a necessary material for this easy DIY project, but I think you'll be surprised at some of the other materials!
- 18 - wooden clothespins
- 1/8 inch wooden dowel
- 19 - 5/8 inch diameter wooden beads
- sawtooth picture hanger
- RIT liquid fabric dye in kelly green
- RIT liquid fabric dye in fuchsia
- silicon adhesive
- wire cutter or heavy duty scissors
When I was planning this project, I was stumped about how to get my clothespins and wooden beads in the colors I wanted. I thought about painting them, but it seemed like a lot of work and I wasn't sure I would be able to get the colors evenly applied. So, I took a rather unconventional approach and used fabric dye instead.
