DIY | Custom Clothespins

I'm one of those people that really love labeling things. On my desk, I put chalk labels on clear bins that describes what's in the box. Yes, it's pretty obvious that there are pens in the transparent box labeled Pens, but regardless, I enjoy the detail.

Here, I labeled favour bags of donuts with clothespins using a tiny alphabet stamp set, which I excitedly found for $1.50 in the Michaels bargain bins (if you haven't already sifted through those bins, you really should - there is some great stuff in there), and finished with a dusting of gold glitter.   

Read on for the how-to.  

These green patterned favour bags can be found at my favourite packaging store Shop Sweet Lulu.  



  • Mini alphabet rubber stamps

Step 1  - Stamp your word onto the top portion of the clothespin (make sure to test out beforehand that all the letters will fit.

Step 2 - Run your glue stick several times on the bottom portion of the clothespin.
