Let's Do This!

Step 1


Step 1:

  1. Mix white paint with a small amount of blue paint to create a very light blue color. Remove the metal clasp from nine clothespins and paint each of the clothespin pieces (18 total) with two coats of paint. Let dry completely.
  2. Add one additional, thin, coat of paint to each clothespin and cover with iridescent glitter. Let dry.


Step 2:

  1. Align the nine pairs of clothespin pieces back to back. Create pearl balls by attaching two pearl gems back to back. Glue a pearl ball in between the small notches of each clothespin pair.


Step 3:

  1. On the right side of each clothespin pair, glue a pearl ball to the lower clothespin notch.


Step 4:

  1. Using the lower notch as a guide, glue the clothespin pairs together until you have formed a circle.
