Decorating with Clothes Pins




I was attempting to clean up my scrappy desk and I got distracted by the clothes pins from the Scenic Route add on. I love the clothes pins that are produced for paper crafting, some are already embellished and they are usually smaller in size which makes them perfect for creating all manner of home decor. Martha created an adorable wall hanging using clothes pins (you can see it here) and it inspired me to create one as well. I’ve had these old tool and die vices on the wall in our basement for a while, they were originally my Grandfather’s (one even has his name engraved on it) and I love them, they are worn and rustic and part of my family history. They are also perfect for creating little vignettes that I can easily switch out whenever I want. Along with the clothes pins I added a few of the cards from the July Day in the Life kit  and instant wall display! I apologize for the bad lighting – dark basement.all three

I did a search on Pinterest and found these other fun ways to use clothes pins in home decor, I really want to try the one with the Christmas lights:
