Laundry Room Décor DiY: Clothespin Wreath

clothespin-fullWhile gathering ideas for laundry room décor, I ran across this gem of a wreath at The Frugal Homemaker.  How fun!  A laundry room wreath fittingly made out of clothespins.  It was too darling and simple to pass up. 

I finished it in an hour and a half, give or take, and only spent about $9, though I did have a lot of the items lying around to begin with.

I used:

  • Wire wreath form
  • Clothespins (I also probably used around 85)
  • Twine
  • Cardstock
  • Burlap sticky letters
  • Ribbon
  • Artificial flowers
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Glue pen

clothespin-staggeredTake your wreath form and stick the clothespins on however you like.  I staggered them because it gave the wreath more dimension.  You could paint the clothespins if you want – do whatever makes you happy!  I wanted to move quickly and I liked the natural look of the wood myself.

clothespin-bareWhen placing my clothespins, if one side had more unique features to the wood (dark spots, lines, etc.), I placed that one forward to give the wreath as much subtle character as possible.

clothespin-bannerI made the little banner by cutting some cardstock pennants, punching one hole at each top corner, and stringing them together with twine.  Using leftover burlap sticky letters I already had, I made the word “Laundry” and reinforced each letter with glue. I tied the banner onto the wreath and used hot glue to attach some artificial flowers and greenery purchased from the dollar store.  For the finishing touch, I tied some pretty colored bows at the tips of the banner and a twine loop for hanging at the top.

Simple yet impactful, this DiY is a quick and easy way to spruce up your laundry room!  Make your chore spaces happier places!
