As you saw in my last blog I’ve been scouring Pinterest for DIY Christmas ornament ideas so Mr. Smith and I can have some memories for our first Christmas as husband and wife (maybe even in our first house if everything goes to plan)
I came across a few involving clothes pins the other day that looked pretty easy so I thought I would give them a go.
Start by taking apart some (by some I mean 8) wooden clothes pins.
Then glue the flat sides together like so
I followed that up by staining them along with a lot of other Christmas ornament supplies by using diluted paint. That’s completely optional though
This is also completely optional. I wrapped the edges of the pins with washi tape.
Next lay out your pins in a star/snowflake pattern. It’s easiest to first do four at 90* angles from each other and four in between those
Then find a bauble to glue to the middle on each side.
I chose to use a small fabric flower topped by a wooden snowflake
Just string some twine or ribbon through one of the small holes in the pins or glue one on and you’re all set
