FIVE days and counting!! And I’m pleased to report that my To-Do list is dwindling. YAY!!
Looks like another Try that Tuesday is upon us. This week’s Pinspiration is a fun Christmas Card Wreath made with clothespins shared by Jess at Craftiness is Not Optional. I love the cuteness factor, along with the simplicity of the project.
I went a different route with my “wreath” and made a Candy Cane instead.
Wanna know how I made mine? Check it out….
– Clothespins (I used 38 – packet comes with 36 from Dollar Tree)
– Wire Hanger
– Red & White wood paint
– Plastic Hook
– Box (as recommended by Jess, I used a diaper box)
The hubby even pitched in with this project, by forming the wire hanger into a candy cane for me. It’s always good to keep a strong handsome man around. =)
Here, I used that handy diaper box to clip on the clothespins and paint them. I applied two coats of paint and made sure to get into all the nooks & crannies. Once the paint was dry, I placed the clothespins onto the wire hanger and added the ribbon.
I found the perfect spot for my Candy Cane “Wreath” right in the kitchen.
I like how it compliments the candy cane platter I have on display.
And there you have it, how I made my clothespin Candy Cane. Are you still crafting your little heart out? This may very well be my last craft project until after the Holidays.
