DIY Glittered Clothespins

 Not sure if you knew this or not but Savannah and I have glitter running though our veins. We can’t help it. These DIY Glitter Clothespins are straight up life changing. It may seem like an over-reaction to most but I assure you, it’s not. I’m head over heels obsessed with them. I am in the middle of constructing a memo board for a command center-ish thing in my kitchen and I had this epiphany that I needed glittered clothespins to clip on memos, photos, invitations, what have you and thus, these babies were born.

They’re ridiculously easy to make and like I said, will instantly change your life. Here goes nothin’…

 First, I sprayed them with gold spray paint. I’m in love with gold right now so it was an easy choice.

 Then, I added regular ole school glue.

 Then, spread it out with your finger like a boss.

 Then, we dip! I used German Glitter Glass (obsessed with it!!) that I bought on eBay. Just search German Glitter Glass and tons of listings pop up. You could use any glitter, in any color. Glitter glass is bomb though. Just sayin’…

 Voila! Done. SO easy and so stinkin cute!

    This is just perfect! I am needing to “glitterfy” some clothespins for a baby shower I’m hosting in a week and a half. Great timing! I love them!
