The Pin Junkie: Washi Tape Clothespins

Here's a super simple craft: washi tape clothespins!  I discovered washi tape on Pinterest and I'm hooked!  Washi tape is similar to masking tape but it has pretty colors and designs.  You can find washi tape really inexpensively, only a dollar a roll.  I picked up a few rolls at the dollar spot at Target and I also got some at Michael's on sale.  I already have plenty of craft supplies and try really hard not to buy more, but I just couldn't resist these pretty colors and designs!  Washi tape can be used to dress up just about anything.  I've used washi tape to decorate gift bags and gift tags.  This time, I used it to pretty up some clothespins.

Washi Tape

To make these fun clothespins, just cut a length of washi tape to fit the length of the clothespin.  One of my washi tapes was narrow and fit the width of the clothespin exactly.  The others, I had to trim a little bit, but it was no biggie.  You can use scissors to trim it, but the tape tears easily and will make a straight, clean tear if you use the edge of the clothespin as a guide.

Then I cut a piece of magnet to fit on the back of the clothes pin.  My magnet was peel and stick so it was easy peasy to stick it on the back!

I love the bright happy colors for holding notes on the fridge!

  9. They look great! Are they strong enough though? I have varying degrees of success (sometimes they are too weak to hold anything) with those types of magnets.

    Thanks for sharing. I am off to look at how you did the bottle cap magnets.

  10. These are so cute! I found a gallon sized bag full of clothes pins at a garage sale. The bag was about fifty cents. I bought it not knowing what to do with them, but over the years I have found great uses for them. This looks like another great use since I have those magnet strips already!

    Thanks for the idea and thank you for sharing at Inspire Me Mondays!

  20. THese are great but I know this would be the gateway to a wildly ridiculous life full of washi taped everything. I see so much that can be done with it and I love how to prettifies everything, especially the pinks. I know, if I wasn't careful, everything in my life would be taped and pinked and I'd never hear the end of it!! I didn't realize it was so easy to find and cheap. Seriously, a recipe for disaster is in the works!
