We recently put a table in our entry way in this strange little nook by the staircase. I love it, but in an effort to keep it from getting cluttered with junk I’ve been putting holiday decorations on it. Right now our stockings and a plate the girl painted a couple of years ago are on the table, and I have a fabric garland tied to the staircase above.
I thought this would be the perfect place to display Christmas cards, but I wasn’t quite sure how I wanted to do it.
But plain clothespins aren’t that festive, so I decided to make glitter clothespins.
This is a super simple, mostly not that messy project if you have an adhesive roller. They’re available on the adhesives aisle of most craft and super stores, and it makes this a really quick project. You’ll use it for other things, I promise, so go ahead and buy one if you don’t already have one. You can thank me later.
- mini clothespins
- glitter (I used gold, natch)
- adhesive roller (mine is extra strength adhesive, but I don’t think it matters)
- a piece of paper
What You’ll Do
- Pour some glitter onto the paper.
- Roll tape onto one side of the clothespin. Fold down the edges.
- Press the tape into the glitter until it’s all covered.
- Hang your cards in disco style.
I really love this project and it took all of about 10 minutes to do. Because I didn’t spray seal these, some glitter will come off when you handle them, but for such a small project it didn’t seem worth it.
How do you add sparkle to your holidays? Have a special way to display cards? I’d love to hear about it.
