I made these quick and easy magnet clothespins for my son’s teacher for her birthday, but they would make a great Christmas gift as well! They were super quick and easy, so much so that I didn’t remember to take any pictures during the process! Oops!
All you need are enough clothespins to spell out whatever word you are making (in my case I needed seven). Then paint the clothespins whatever color combination works for you. These ones are painted the same colors as she has decorated her classroom so I know she will like them but you could do reds and greens for a more holiday feel.
Once they are dry simply pull out some extra scrabble letter tiles to spell out your word. I keep an extra bag of these lying around, but you can easily find then at a second hand store for next to nothing or even order them online!
I chose to give my letters a quick coat of white spray paint so that they would pop next to the brightly painted clothespins and then traced over the inset letters with a black sharpie. I used E6000 to attach the letters to the clothespins and then stuck adhesive magnets on the back! This project took me about 15 minutes excluding drying time but it is something I know she will love!
