Giant Clothespins

Hope you all had a Happy Mother's Day! I had a great one. I have such an awesome husband and great kids! I am so blessed! :)

Here is my newest project:
We went to AC Moore yesterday and the girls found these giant clothespins and they just had to have them.
So, I brought them home and painted them white....

Sorry the picture quality is horrible. :(
After the paint dried I added some cute scrapbook paper to each side and mod podged that on there.


I think they are soooo cute! I gave them to the girls this morning and they LOVED them! :) Not really sure what they plan to do with them, but I am glad I made something that they like! :)
I have 2 more that I haven't done anything with yet. Any ideas??
Happy Monday. Hope you all have a great week!

Over from Meetup Monday and I agree, those are super cute! If I knew what to do with them I'd be making some right now....but I bet I can come up with a use :)

It would be cool to use them to hang beach towels somewhere. You could also clip them to a stake horizontally and make garden signs.On Halloween you could make your yard look like a giant lives there.

What a fun decorative accessory for a laundry room! I've seen these around in blogland, but haven't found one in person yet. As soon as I do, though, I'm grabbing a couple!

Those are so cute. Some ideas are to hold a picture or a recipe.

Visiting from Meet Up Monday...I love these clothespins. I use two on my desk at work (middle school teacher) and students just clip their passes, etc, in for me to handle later. They are so versatile.

Love these!! Turn them upside down. You can clip a picture in them to display!

Stopping by from TMT - I painted these too, but didn't cover them. Mine had a little hole in the back so I nailed them to the wall and the kids put their art work in the clips.
