How to Make a Clothespin Wreath Step by Step
Gather all of your clothespin wreath supplies. Most items we used can be found at the dollar store or dollar tree (such as full size wooden clothespins) If using the 8″ metal wreath form you’ll need 42 clothespins. Place all clothespins in a gallon ziploc bag. In a disposable cup, add a heaping tablespoon of orange acrylic craft paint along with two tablespoons of water and mix together. Pour the paint mixture into the ziploc bag.
Close the bag and mix around the clothespins and paint. Do this until all clothespins are coated with craft paint. Do this over an area like kitchen sink just in case the bag becomes punctured by the clothespins.
Cover a cookie a sheet covered with aluminum foil, unzip the plastic bag, and turn out the painted clothespins onto the cookie sheet to dry.
For faster drying time and to ensure that the paint isn’t coagulating in one spot, prop each of the wooden clothespins around the edge of the cookie sheet. Once the tops are dry you can flip them over so the bottom will dry completely.
While your clothespins are drying you can move on to the next step. In a well-ventilated area outside the house, cover the 8″ wire wreath form with orange spray paint. Set the form aside to let dry completely. Spray with a second coat if needed. This ensures that none of the green is seen inbetween the clothespins.
When the wreath form and the clothespins have dried you can clip the wooden clothespins around the two inner circles of the wreath form. The outer ring is used as support, so they won’t move around too much.
Continue to clip and arrange the painted wooden clothespins around the wreath form. You should be able to pin about fourteen clothespins into each of the three sections of the wreath form.
Once you have all of the clothespins clipped on, move them around so they are spaced equally around the wreath form. If you think they need more securing you can apply a dab of hot glue in between each clothespin.
Using a pair of scissors, cut one jumbo popsicle craft stick in half . Paint both halveswith dark brown acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Attach the craft sticks to the top back of the wreath with a healthy dab of hot glue. Cut a few leaves from a fall silk stem. Hot glue to the leaves to the back and front of the wreath (near the pumpkin stem).
Measure and cut several equal lengths of natural jute twine with scissors. Tie in a bow and secure at the top front of the wreath with hot glue. Add a fabric wire ribbon bow if you’d like to layer on the accents and give this pumpkin wreath a bit more pop!
