Repurposed Clothes Pin Flowers

Have you ever thought about giving your old clothes pins a new lease on life?

By following a few easy steps, you can create a unique and eye-catching decoration that will impress your friends and family. This delightful craft project allows you to unleash your creativity and transform ordinary household items into a stunning display of floral beauty.

Once I had my clothes pins I started looking for something for the center of the flowers, and I found a $1 package of 4 plastic coasters. There were 4 different colors in the package… orange, green, purple, and blue. Perfect!

So to put these easy peasy flowers together you just start by clipping the clothes pins around the plastic coaster

until you have them placed and spaced in a way that you like.

Then remove each clothes pin from the coaster one at a time, open them, and add a dab of E6000 glue to one side on the inside of the clip. You can also use Marine Goop adhesive.

Then just close each one for a second just so the glue is on both sides of the inside of the clip.

This way the clothes pins get glued on both sides of the coaster.

Removing the clothes pins one at a time makes it easy to place them back in position, at least for me.

If I had glued them as I originally added them to the coaster I’m not sure my spacing would have ended up looking very good. If you have a better eye than I do, then feel free to go for it all at once.

To hang my flowers I’m using the same fancy schmancy system as I did with my repurposed folding strainer steamer flowers, good old fashioned stainless steel spoons that I flattened with a hammer and then bent.

After gluing on the spoon with E6000 let the whole thing cure for at least 24 hours.
