Clothespin Laundry Room Art

As promised in last week's post, I have the details on how to make your very own laundry room art.  After we remodeled our laundry room I wanted to decorate it with some of our vintage collection as well as a few new things.  This little piece is one of the new things that I created.
You may have all the things you need to create this little piece of art in your stash right now.  It only took me a few minutes to put together and of course it didn't cost me anything since I already had all the items on hand.
You will need:
1 empty tomato sauce can
17 clothespins
craft glue
baker's twine
scrapbook paper
2 wooden skewers

To create your laundry room art:
Cut you scrapbook paper to fit your can and glue it securely.  Pin all the clothespins around the top opening of the can.  I used my Cricut Expressions machine to cut out the little triangles and letters and then glued them all together, then I glued them to the baker's twine.  Lastly glue the twine to the wooden sticks and then add them to the can. Arrange until you like it and your done!
I think its adorable and I'm thinking at some point I will stash the banner and add a small plant or some wild flowers to the little clothespin can. Now that I think of it, the possibilities are endless.
What better thing to use as art in a laundry room than a few clothespins.  By the way, have you seen our Clothespin Chandelier? I have a few more things I've pinned on Pinterest that I want to try soon as well.

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
