Glitter Clothespin Gift Tags by Fawnda Norman

Here is what you will need:



Mod Podge

Ultrafine Opaque Art Glitter: Vine #47, Fire Engine #291
Ultrafine Transparent Art Glitter: Polar Bear #298

1. Take apart your clothespins

2. Paint your clothespins on both sides and let dry.

3. Cover the top and sides with Mod Podge and sprinkle with Art Glitter.

I used Vine # 47, Fire Engine #291, Polar Bear #298

4. Put your clothespins back together

I made these tags by editing some photos (on Picnik) and printed them on a brown paper bag that I cut to the size of an 8.5X11 piece of paper.

A full tutorial on how to make the tags is coming soon to Fireflies and Jellybeans!

Merry Christmas everyone!

I have really enjoyed being an Art Glitter Guest Designer!


  1. What a nice touch to an everyday item! My question is how do you get the clothespins back together without pulling your hair out?

  2. I did pull mine out! :) I ended up using a butter knife to help pry the metel spring open.

  3. These are delightful Fawnda! I love them!

  4. Thanks for the tutorial, I just brought a packet of these yesterday and I will give it a go. But i think Ill keep the spring on! I never have much luck putting them back together when they come apart on the clothes line either lol. Yours look really sweet!
