Supplies
Scissors (or cutting tool to cut decorative paper)
Decorative paper (two strips) cut 3/8” X 3” (or to fit size of clothespin used)
Wooden clip style clothespin
Foam brush
Embellishment
ModPodge
Tacky Glue






Step 1: Apply a coat of ModPodge to the flat side of the clothespin with the foam brush.


Step 2: Press the paper onto the clothespin, making sure it adheres to the ModPodge in all areas.


Step 3: Smooth the paper along the top and edges to create a firm seal of the paper to the clothespin. Then, allow it to dry.

Step 4: Turn the clothespin over and repeat steps 1 through 3.


Step 5: Apply a generous coat of ModPodge on top of the paper, smoothing it as you paint it on. Then, allow one side to dry before turning it over and repeating on the opposite side.


Step 6: Turn the clothespin on its side and continue to apply ModPodge. This step will seal any small slivers or rough spots of wood for ease in handling. Allow to dry, then turn over and repeat on the opposite side.


Step 7. Glue embellishment to the clothespin with the white tacky glue. (It is not necessary to apply additional ModPodge on top of the embellishement.)
