DIY Clothespins Pin Bulletin Board

Many of the kids are back in school and others are getting ready to go back very soon.  Here is a fun project that is perfect for back to school, the office or your studio to help keep things organized.  These little clips are also great for holding the kids artwork, photos, papers they bring home or artwork done around the house.  Crew Member Dana Tatar shows us how simple they are to make and so cute.
just do it I love office supplies almost as much as I love art supplies. I always feel a little left out when I’m filling up the cart with items for my kids at the beginning of each school year. To help myself feel like I’m starting fresh along with them, I decided to dress up some clothespins for my bulletin board. This project was super fun, fast and inexpensive. It’s a win-win-win and the pins turned out better than anything I have seen in the stores.

Step 1:  Cut burlap fringe, canvas, and lace to fit clothespins. Adhere the burlap fringe and canvas to the top of the clothespins with hot glue. For transparency, seal lace onto the top of the clothespins with gel medium.
 Step 2:  Flip the clothespins over and use hot glue to attach tacks to the bottom portion of the pins.
Make Your Own
You can use these clothespin tacks in any cork board and clip what you want into place.  For best results use a multipurpose glue with quick holding power.
