One of my daughters favorite types of crafts to do are crafts that can spruce up her room. Whether it’s a creative way to store toys, or a DIY dreamcatcher, she is all about making her room her own. This week there was a great deal on photo print outs so we printed out a bunch of photos and were trying to think of a fun way to display them. And after searching through our craft stash and found a ton of clothespins (side note, no idea where they came from ha!) and came up with a fun idea. So that is how we thought of this DIY Clothespin Picture Holder! It would be great for a tween/teen room too! And the best part is that it is easy enough for your kids to make by themselves! My 7 year old made the one I used for this example and I think she did a great job. 

Let’s check out how to make it shall we?

Here is how to make this DIY Clothespin Picture Holder:

Step 1: Gather your supplies! You will need about 20 clothespins, a piece of cardboard, 2 colors of pain, scissors, and a hot glue gun.

Step 2: Trace a circle on your piece of cardboard and cut it out. then trace a smaller circle out of the middle and cut that out as well.

Step 3: Using your hot glue gun, you will want to glue your clothespin around your cardboard. Make sure it is not the part that will open and close. You will be using that side to secure your photos.

Step 4: After all of your clothespins are secure, it’s time to get creative! You can pain your DIY Clothespin Picture Holder any way you would like! My daughter decided to go with pink and green as her color choices. Once you have it painted let it dry completely before moving to the next step. 

Step 5: Now it’s time to attach your pictures! I have found that small pictures that are cut in odd shapes work best for this type of holder. Plus, it looks really cool!
