The holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean the winter crafting has to stop!

Today, I have a fun and EASY craft idea to add some life to your cold-weather home decor…


Clothespin ornaments are easy, and are the perfect craft for a winter weekend!

clothespin ornament


8 clothespins

hot glue

ribbon or twine {if hanging}



embellishments {optional}


Take apart all {8} clothespins {the metal spring should pop right off with just a little finagling – I used skinny pliers}

Each clothespin will give you {2} pieces with one side flat.  Align the flat sides together and use hot glue to attach.

Once all pairs are glued together, start by glueing two together at the rounded end.  4 total will make the first shape of the snowflake. {similar to an X shape}

Glue the remaining 4 pairs into the inside corners of the X shape.

**optional: add glitter, or a quick dash of metallic paint for a little extra shine

This is a GREAT use for Sparkle Mod Podge if you have it!!

Tie with ribbon, twine or wire

Hang & Enjoy!
