A while ago I spotted some pimped up clothes pins in Internet World and I just knew I had to make some for myself. Laundry, and then particularly the hanging laundry on a clothes line outside, is one of my everyday (and never ending...) pleasures. Yes, I know. It sounds crazy doesn't it. But I didn't say I liked the folding or putting away of laundry... Naughty me. That part I leave for the kids to do. Ha!
Anyway. For this little project I had to have following:
♥ Wooden clothes pins
♥ Washi tape with cute patterns
♥ Acrylic hobby paint
♥ Paint brush
♥ Rotary cutter
♥ Cutting mat
I got started. Painted my pins white, pink and green. Let them dry. And then came the fun part - cutting Washi tape strips, attaching the tape and cutting off ends to fit the peg and - VOILA! Am I a happy laundry girl or what? I must have the most beautiful clothes pegs in the world. And I will make more, be so sure. This was great fun.
I found the Washi tape on ETSY, here and here. Which pin is your favorite? I think that shabby chick light turquoise one with the roses on... And I have to say, suddenly the hanging up laundry part even gets more satisfying. It is amazing how much a little cuteness and color can make the most boring (for many - not me!!!) job fun. You should try it.
