Have you seen those cute little chalkboard clothespins around the web? There are a bunch of Etsy shops and boutique deal sites that have had them lately. And I came really close to buying some until I realized I had the stuff to make my own! And it’s a little easier on the ole’ budget too (more money for crafting-yea!).
These were super easy to do, easily personalized, and I’m thinking I’ll be making these for all kinds of events in the future-baby showers, birthday parties, and even Young Women events. Here’s what you need to make them. Two of the supplies I used came from my favorite daily deal site-Pick Your Plum! If you don’t know who they are, you’ll want to check them out. As sad as it is to admit, I check their website first thing when I get up in the mornings! Some of their really great deals go quick 🙂
Once that was done, I added the chalkboard vinyl.
I then cured the chalkboard vinyl by using the side of a piece of chalk and dragging it across the vinyl. This prevents the vinyl from “ghosting” as much. Finally, I used wood glue to adhere the clothespins to the back. Don’t ask my why, but I’ve found that wood glue adheres so much better than hot glue!
