Crafts with wooden clothespins for children
Tutorial at Glued to my Crafts
We started with a simple craft to make queens, kings, princesses or princes with painted wooden clothespins. In a little while you can have the whole court ready.

More elaborate this other craft made with wooden clothespins, in which a catapult has been built. It is somewhat more elaborate, as I say, but nothing out of the ordinary. In addition, once done, your children can play for hours with it.

Do your kids like super heroes? With this craft you can turn each clothespin into a different and own super hero. Captain Cauliflower or the super heroine Captain Time to Sleep, for example. It is enough with some markers of different colors, cardboard or some folio to paint later and create the layer and also to draw the two eyes.

Crafts with clothespins for adults. Decorative
Tutorial at Kojo Designs
A wreath, but not of flowers, not for Christmas or Halloween, but made with clothespins and ready to store and always have tea bags close at hand in the kitchen.
Tutorial at Cfabbridesigns
How about making some original flowerpots with clothespins? Not only the tongs are needed, but also a canister and other materials that we all have at home. But the craft is quite simple and also decorative. Also, then you can customize the clamps as you like.
Tutorial in Dream a Little Bigger
This is one of my favorites, since it doesn’t take much material to make it and I love how it looks. It is about joining the clothespins previously decorated to taste, to create the most original and effective placemats.

We can also make a mirror for any area of the house. Don’t tell me that the mirror you see above these lines has no style. If you like you can make it in the color you want, it does not have to be in gold.

Although we are now locked up at home, soon we will leave, for sure, and the good weather will come. You can prepare these tablecloths made with clothespins for when you have parties in the pool or garden in the summer.
The same craft that we saw above to make a planter. Or at least the same idea, we can use it to create original candle holders. Of course, be very careful with the flame of the candle and the wood of the clamps.
Just as we saw before, as with a clothes pegs, a support had been made to organize the handkerchiefs, we can also make one for the kitchen, to store cloths or some cloth and have them always at hand in an original place.
