Are you ready for a simple project for one of the most neglected areas of your house? The laundry area! I shared this clothespin art over at Made from Pinterest a couple of months ago, so its time to share it here. And you get a sneak peek of the laundry area of Mabey Manor so its a double fun post. Enjoy!
Hi again, it’s Lisa from Mabey She Made It back for another project today. We recently made a pretty awesome laundry closet in our house, and I LOVE the open counter space, the fresh white color, and the ample shelving. It’s been heavenly. It also has been screaming for a little something to liven up the middle section of the folding area. So when I was searching for laundry room decor ideas, I came across this clothespin art from Sweet Something Designs and had to pin it and try it.
I had an 8″ x 10″ canvas on hand and I recently picked up some fun clothespins from the dollar spot at Target, so I started playing.
Since I had a white wall and a white canvas, I needed to add some color or it would just disappear into the background. Here’s what I did:
- Adhere a piece of tissue paper (mine was gold polka-dot) using Mod Podge. Make sure to smooth it out as you go and get the sides too. Then set the canvas aside to dry.
- If your clothespins aren’t already painted and you want them colored, paint them up. Mine came painted (and glittered) so I didn’t have to do this step.
- Adhere the clothespins to your canvas using hot glue in a pattern you like.
And in just a few minutes worth of work, you have some beautiful clothespin art for your laundry room! I love how simple the design is and how quick it was to create.
