Clothespin crafts, because they're for more than just hanging up your clothes.Once upon a time, a along time ago, I had a clothesline, but alas it is gone and all that remains is a bucket full of clothespins. So what’s a girl to do with all these wooden clothespins? Make some awesome clothespin crafts with them, of course!

There are many simple clothespin crafts you can do. Remember the reindeer made with clothepins from elementary school? Or how about the crazy bat clothespins?

Here are a five more clothespin crafts that can be updated for adults.

I love this little clothespin wishing well. My oldest son actually made me one when he was in elementary school (which seems like so long ago since he just graduated from high school this past June).

This wishing well could easily be used as a pretty centerpiece at a wedding or party. Simply fill the inside with candies or small flowers to dress it right up.

4. Photo Holder

  2. I like the memo rack! Somewhere I saw an idea where the clothespins were decoupaged with pretty paper. I think I’ll combine the two ideas. Hm. Maybe my girls can make one for Granny too.
