Christmas Clothespin Wreath

So now with Christmas almost upon us, I wanted to take the last few days to make some Christmas Crafts. This weekend I spied this AWESOME clothespin wreath on Pinterest which lead me to Hambly Screen Prints Blog. Not only is it a fantastic blog with fun projects, it's also an online store full of the coolest scrapbook\crafting supplies. If you haven't been to Hambly Screen Prints... GO NOW!


The clothespin wreath was so fun and easy to make! 
Supplies you need:

  • Wooden clothespins
  • scrapbook papers
  • Washi tape (or decorative tape) You can buy washi tape at Hambly, Amazon.com, etsy, Michaels or most craft stores)
  • Glue
  • Thick cardboard for circle (or Michaels sells pre-made circle forms)
  • Felt to cover cardboard (although I skipped that step)



Decorate your clothespin however you like. Mine were a combination of scrapbook paper, decorative tape from Martha Stewart and glitter. 
The longest part was cutting all the strips and gluing them on, but once they are done it's just a matter of putting the clothespins around the ring. It was fun and easy. 
I didn't decorate the other side of the clothespins. But you could easily do them in a different color scheme or  Holiday. Then if you wanted to take apart the wreath you could use the clothespins for a different project. Because I'm sure if you typed "Clothespin" into Pinterest you would have a plethora of projects. Just sayin'.

So pretty!!

We don't have snow either. I don't love driving in it, but it is weird to be almost Christmas without any.
Ridiculously cute! Have seen this done with plain old clothes pins but yours is to the next level of cuteness!

Closer and Closer

Wedding planning... oh JOY! I'm at the point where I can finally take a breather and just enjoy the time right now. I have been a bad friend... not returning phone calls, not answering emails. I get stressed out and crabby about wedding invitations and silly wedding to-dos. Tomorrow is my last day of work for 5 glorious weeks! I need these days off. I come home from work and there is always something going on at night! ALWAYS! T and I made a pact to not add so much to the month of July. To just enjoy the last month as a "dating" couple before we are a "married" couple. T has to work on selling his house, I need to work on my house getting ready for out of town guests and a rehearsal dinner in my backyard. So if we are absent in July... it's just because we decided we need some us time. On a great note, our pre-marriage counselor says we make a great couple. I mean we already new that, but it's nice to hear it from a professional. :)

Glitter House

I'm obsessed with glitter houses! Especially old vintage ones. I have a nice little collection of them, but I also thought it would be easy to make my own.  My mom ordered a bunch of cardboard houses from Hobby Lobby online. Sadly, there are Hobby Lobby stores in MN, but they are in the southern part of the state. One day I'll have to make a special trip down there! 


You can really do whatever you want with these houses. I painted mine first with acrylic paint and then sprinkled some mica snow flakes on them. I got  2 huge bags of Mica Snow Flakes off of Ebay last year. On the roof I painted glue on and then put a ton of glitter and snow flakes. 
I had some vintage glass balls I used on the wreath and trees. But really you can use anything you like!
