It’s no secret that I love glitter. In fact, I’ve even glittered clothespins before, but I wasn’t going to let that stop me when I stumbled across these mini clothespins at Michaels. So while these little guys won’t hold much, they will add a nice touch to your next party favor bag. And if you’re not throwing a party anytime soon, they’ll still look great amidst all the other stuff that’s piling up on your desk.
In a small dish, mix equal parts mod podge and glitter. If you want your clips to be extra sparkly, just mix in more glitter as you go.
Clip the clothespins onto a thin piece of cardboard. Brush on your glitter mixture, avoiding the sides of the pins. Let dry, then flip over and repeat on the other side.
Fact: an awesome goodie bag can make any party 10 times better. For your next get-together try including a handmade favor to really wow your guests. These baker’s twine party favors take less than 20 minutes to make and cost about $.50 a piece, making them perfect for the hostess on a time and budget crunch! And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love receiving free craft supplies?
Before starting, I recommend painting your bobbins to match your party theme. They’re originally white, so you can paint them any color you want without having to prime the surface or do multiple coats. If you’d like the paint to be extra durable, seal with a layer of Mod Podge.
All you do it wrap your baker’s twine on the bobbin as you would embroidery floss. Secure in the slit, snip the excess twine, then get back to planning the rest of your party!
