Happy July : DIY Craft

Today is my Quick and Easy Clothes pin Wreath for the 4th of July ! But by changing the colors you can make this wreath for any occasion. So have fun and a Safe Holiday weekend…. Lisa

Supply List:

Gather the following supplies:

  • One 12-inch box wreath frame
  • 64-100 clothespins (The number of clothespins will depend on the size of your wreath. Our 12″ wreath used 64 clothespins.)
  • Red, white and blue spray paint
  • 10 wooden stars
  • White craft paint
  • Foam paint brushes
  • Rubber gloves
  • Hot glue gun
  • String or ribbon for hanging the finished wreath

You can buy your supplies at the local dollar store or big box store. Or use what you have. Spray paint the clothespins red, white and blue. …

Now Spray paint your clothespins and stars:

One method is taking 3 old boxes and clipping each color on a box and spray and let dry. Or your can clip them to a line and spray them one at a time, Make sure it’s a calm day – and let dry.

Spray paint the wreath frame red, white or blue. …

Paint the small wooden stars white. …

Let Dry Completely.

Clip Dried Clothespin to wreath:

Once all the pieces are fully dry, begin assembling the wreath.

Start by clipping one pin to the two center “bars”, or bar two and three of the frame. Then place the next pin on the two bars closest to the center of the frame, or bars three and four.

Make sure to alternate between red and white for the “stripes” and then add a section of blue clothespins where the stars go.

After everything is in place – hot glue the clothes pins in place and Glue the Stars on. Add a hanger and Enjoy your New Wreath…. Lisa
