Good Luck Fairies!

Bring good luck into your life with these cute little good luck fairies made from regular clothespins! You can hang them anywhere! blank630x20

Who couldn’t use a little extra good luck? We’ve got some adorable little fairy tokens to bring you some!  They’re made from clothespins and scraps of artificial flowers, felt and ribbon and are super easy to make. I “painted” mine using a variety of things from markers, to regular paint. Then I decorated them with things I already had. I already feel luckier! P.S. If you like these you’ll definitely love our  beautiful little Stand Alone Fairy Doors!

Supplies

  • Traditional one piece clothespins (not the spring type)
  • Hack saw to cut by hand. (You can use an electric saw of course if you have one.)
  • Paint or markers
  • Artificial flowers, leaves etc.
  • Hot glue gun
  • Small eye hook
  • String
  • Drillblank630x20

Visual Instructions

Notes: When you drill the hole in the top make it a little bit smaller than the eye hook so it will still screw in.  I colored mine various ways and all of them worked fine. I found it easier to color them before cutting but it doesn’t really matter.

Who couldn't use a little more luck? These fairies are here to bring it! Made from a regular clothespin and things you having lying around the house you can hang them anywhere. Bring the luck of the fae into your life! In honor of International Fairy Day!blank630x20 Good Luck Fairies Stepsblank630x20

Birds on a Wire Note Set

This upcycle project would make a great useful gift! Its a little birds on a wire note holder set made from clothespins and a can. Add in some string and paper and they can make a hanging note center! Comes with FREE PRINTABLES! blank630x20

This little note can gift set uses an empty soup can. I used a smooth edge can  opener to remove the lid so there are no sharp edges.   The clothespins are dyed yellow with Rit Dye and the birds and label are provided as a free download.  Then toss in a pen and some note paper. I added a string to attach on the wall for hanging notes or photos. You could also attach sticky magnet sheets on the back of your clothespins or glue a regular magnet for using the clothespins on the fridge.   I cut my birds out using my Silhouette Cutter but they are easily done by hand using scissors. I’ve included both types below as a free download.

Birds on a Wire Note Set Supplies

  • 1 soup can
  • aprox 6 clothespins dyed
  • Scrapbook paper to cover can
  • Downloaded, printed and cut birds and label.
  • Glue

How To Color Clothespins!

If you like using clothespins in your crafting here’s a fast way to color a lot of them at once! We’ve got detailed instructions for you along with examples. Ü blank630x20

Color your clothespins easily with these methods! You can then use them for a huge variety of crafts and useful items!  I’ve dyed them, hand painted them and spray painted them.  Dying is is by far the easiest method in my opinion,   but the other ways work fine too.blank630x20

blank630x20How To Color Clothespins : Dying

This is the easiest way to color clothespins. You can do a bunch at a time and it covers them wonderfully plus you don’t’ have to take them apart which can be a pain. I’ve used regular food coloring which gives more of a stained looked. That can work depending on what you’re after.  Rit Dye gives a much deeper and more vibrant color.

 

 Food coloring or Rit Dye each give a unique look depending on what you are after.

How To Color Clothespins : Painting

You can take the clothespins apart and paint if desired. It’s a bit of work in order to cover all sides and I found it tedious as I struggled to get them back together. I also tried painting over everything and not taking it apart. I painted the tops and sides and let it dry then I opened it up and painted under the part that clamps together. I then stuck a toothpick in so it would dry and the paint would not stick together. It depends on your patience and how much time you want to spend as to whether this method is for you.

Clothespin Necklace Holder

Clothespin Necklace Holder blank630x20

It’s an organizer and  a craft!  BONUS! I used a left over wood plaque from my Bell Jar project but you can get these plaques at craft stores super cheap. I’ve seen them at dollar stores too. I spray painted clothespins silver then glued on some jewels I’d saved from a broken bracelet.  Then you attach a picture hanger on the back to mount it on the wall.  You can use longer pieces of wood if you want it to hold more.  Just cut it the length you want, paint and add clothespins!  (You’ll notice it’s holding some of my clothespin spring necklaces!)

Supplies

  • Wood Plaque
  • Clothespins
  • Hot Glue
  • Paint and gems etc.blank630x20

 

Paint your plaque whatever color you like.  Paint your clothespins a contrasting color. Glue them onto the board. Add decor items if desired. Add a picture hanger onto the back of the board so you can hang it on the wall.

Paper Clothes Pin Hand Fan Tutorial-2 blank Paper Clothes Pin Hand Fan Tutorial-3 blank Press one of the paper fan into the clothespin about half way into the opening. If you press it too far down it will make the span of the fan smaller. You want enough stuck in to make it sturdy. 2″ is a good estimate.

You can trim if desired to make them flush with the wood for wrapping. Paper Clothes Pin Hand Fan Tutorial-5blank Wrap your string, yarn, cord or ribbon around the pin. Overlap one end to hold it in place then put a dab of hot glue on the other end. Cover as much as you like. We did ours down to where the clothespin tapers.
