Stamped Clothespin Magnets: Nifty Gifties!


clothespin_family_theme

These take less than 5 minutes! You can make them on Mother’s Day, let them dry, and still give them to your mom a few hours later. You can personalize them with names of children or grandchildren for holding photos, or you can go with a theme of organizing or relaxing or dreaming or whatever you would like.

Materials:

  • Clothespins
  • Alphabet stampers
  • An ink pad (not washable!)
  • Tiny craft magnets
  • Hot glue gun and glue

Directions:

  1. Stamp your words either vertically or horizontally onto the clothespin.
  2. Glue the magnet to the back of the clothespin.
  3. Let them dry.

Seriously. It is that easy.  

Don’t have access to stamps? Use cute paper and mod podge – remember these?
