DIY Glitter Clothespins

We use a lot of chip clips in our house.  They work well for quickly securing all kinds of bags around the house plus even young children can use them.  However, they are generally not very pretty.  I am excited to show you a very quick and very cheap way to make your own DIY glitter clothespins!

DIY-glittler-clothespins-Crafts-Unleashed-1This is seriously one of the most simple crafts ever!  Your children can even create them.  But what makes these so much fun is that simple clothespins turn into beautiful, sparkly, functional clips in a matter of seconds.  And the part that makes my husband happy is that this glitter doesn’t come off!

DIY-glittler-clothespins-Crafts-Unleashed-2This Sparkle Tape is some of the coolest tape I’ve seen.  It is similar to washi tape in that it is a paper tape that tears easily and isn’t as sticky as traditional tape.  It is incredibly glittery, however the glitter does not come off!  Sparkle Tape is the perfect way to add a little sparkle to just about anything without ending up with glitter everywhere!

All you need to do is tear a piece of sparkly tape a bit longer then the clothespin.  Remove the backing and adhere the tape to the clothespin. Then cut off the excess tape.

    These are awesome! I actually made some of these with adhesive and glitter. This looks so much easier and less “messy”. People find it funny to see my glittered clothespins holding a bag of lettuce shut or a bag of chips :)
