Craft Vomit: DIY Clothespin Wreath

There is an adorable green clothespin wreath over here at Craftiness is Not Optional and I wanted to make one right away. I found embroidery hoops for five bucks at Joanne’s… then I found a couple at Goodwill for a buck! I took the money I saved and bought some new items for the giving tree at our church. It’s a win-win situation, really.

I thought about painting the clothespins green but didn’t because that would make sense, painting a wreath green. No, I had to paint it different and because I was a kindergarten teacher the only red paint I have is the obnoxious but pretty shade of bright red. I darkened it a bit with some purple paint.

The ribbon is 60% off at Joanne’s. Life is too short to waste on cheap, ugly ribbon.
