Supplies for these Clothespin Crafts

- Tongue Depressors
- Drill for hole in depressors
Visuals For Display Sticks
Notes: I used most of my clothespins raw except for the red ones which I dyed. Here is a tutorial on how to color your clothespins!
For holders mark your tongue depressors. 2″ will be cut off.
If you have a fine saw you can cut them with that. I used scissors. You have to be careful with scissors as the wood can split.
Drill a hole in the end to put string through.
Sand the rough edge where you cut it so it’s smooth.
This shows the various things I used. Washi tape is the easiest. You can use just about anything to decorate them with including buttons, glitter, gems etc.
This set is from our Herb Plant Label post. Download the labels shown plus others here.
This is another set I had done using the normal card for display. Its a piece of cardboard covered with scrapbook paper. These clothespins are all dyed with Rit Dye. We have a great tutorial on how to dye and color clothespins here.
