After introducing my new reminder tree to our family earlier this week, my children have enjoyed clipping their information in a fun new place where it’s easy to see. Tonight when my daughter brought home a one inch wide note about her gymnastics meet (which I had forgotten) we knew right where to put it! To make it even more fun, I decided to embellish our clothespins with ribbon. My ribbon organizer is inspiring me to use my ribbon more often.
All you need is ribbon, clothespins, scissors and a hot glue gun.
First I measured and cut my ribbon. With a hot glue gun, I simply went around the clothespin and carefully adhered the ribbon to it.
Repeat the process with as many clothespins as you want!
I think they add a fun bit of personality to my topiary-turned-reminder station project.
This quick project made me happier than I anticipated. Suddenly I’m thinking of all the places I can use these cute clothespins! They will definitely be making appearances in more areas of my house.
Happy, cheerful, useful. This was also a no cost project, since I used ribbon scraps and clothespins I had on hand. If you need to buy clothespins, I found a package of 18 for $1.50 at my local grocery store. Not bad! (In this economy, it’s kind of fun to discover things that cost less than $2.00).
What would you use them for?
