DiY Laundry Room Decor: Clothespin Wreath

While gathering ideas for laundry room decor, I ran across this gem of a wreath. How fun: a laundry room wreath fittingly made out of clothespins! It was too simple to pass up.

This isn’t much of a post because I just followed someone else’s tutorial. I wanted to share what I did though because it is so easy and I love quick and cheap, but impactful crafts projects. I finished it in maybe an hour and a half and it cost about $9, give or take.

WHAT I USED:

  • Wire wreath form
  • Clothespins (less than 100)
  • Twine
  • Cardstock
  • Sticky burlap letters
  • Ribbon
  • Artificial flowers
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue
  • Glue dots

I clipped the clothespins onto the wreath form, staggering them because I liked how it gave the wreath more dimension, but you could also clip them flat. You could paint the clothespins if you prefer – whatever makes you happy! I liked the natural look of the wood best myself.

When placing the clothespins, if one side had more unique features to the wood such as dark spots, lines, etc., I placed that one forward to give the wreath as much character as possible.

I made the little banner by cutting some cardstock pennants, piercing the holes with the hole punch, and stringing them together with twine. I used some leftover burlap sticky letters I had and reinforced them with glue dots, which are likely available in the scrapbooking section of your local craft store. I tied the banner on the wreath and hot glued on some artificial flowers and greenery from the dollar store. For the finishing touch, I tied some pretty colored bows at the tips of the banner and a twine loop for hanging at the top.

This was a great DiY project: fast, easy, cheap, fun, and cute! There are countless versions of these online, so endless opportunities for inspiration. Again, here is my original source. You won’t regret giving this idea a try!
