American Flag Clothespin Wreath

May 28, 2017



Hello, friends!  I hope that you're having an amazing Memorial Day Weekend.  My long weekend is off to a great start.  Yesterday, my family got together at a nearby lake for a breakfast picnic and morning full of kayaking and canoeing.  


Later today, Ashley and I are taking the pups back to the lake for a swim with their fur-friends.  We're capping off the weekend with a BBQ at my parent's house tomorrow.  Wait until you see what I'm making!  I'll be sharing a sneak peek on Facebook and Instagram so make sure you're following me so you don't miss it!

Last night, I made a super simple wreath to jazz up our front door a little for the holiday.  The project couldn't have been easier!  I grabbed a pack of clothespins and divided them into 3 piles of 20.  I painted one pile red, another white and the last pile was painted blue.  


Next, I arranged the clips on a wreath form, staggering them to make the wreath look a little more interesting.  Each stripe was formed by 5 clothes pins.  


Once the clothespins were all placed on the wreath form, I used white paint to create shabby chic stars on the blue clips.


I finished the wreath off with a burlap bow with red trim.



And viola!  There you have it!  I rustic, shabby chic clothespin wreath perfect for Memorial Day or 4th of July.  It cost me a whopping $2 to make it and it looks great hanging on my front door.
