Washi Tape Clothespins


Washi Tape Clothespins

Over here at out house, we are always hanging art on a line. I keep a jar of clothespins at arm’s reach. This week we were preparing for a neighborhood art show, so I decided to make the clothespins a little fancier.

This is very simple! Buy clothespins like these that art flat at the top (some have ridges). Then just cut a piece of washi tape the length of the clothespin. Tape it down and smooth it out. Trim if needed. Voila! A fancy clothespin that will add pizzazz to just about anything! I even used one to attach a postcard to my friend’s vegan birthday cookbook. Hmmm…the possibilities….

Washi Tape Art

This idea comes from Rubyellen (mom to four!) of CAKIES. It’s such a simple and fun idea…all you need is tape and paper.

Rubyellen’s tape is from Kid Made Modern at Target. I like the use of solid tape for this project. It lends itself better to interpreting ideas than patterned tape would, especially for smaller children. But I think my older girls (9 & 12) will try it with our collection of patterned washi tape!
