After getting some inspiration from the clothespin crafts I posted the other day, I decided to start on my own project.
I had already started making a chalkboard out of a pizza pan, so I decided to glue painted clothespins around it and attach a ribbon. It matches my home decor so that I can use it all year long!
Pizza pan or other serving tray
Chalkboard paint (or make your own)
Industrial-strength all-purpose glue or hot glue
Paint your pan or tray
Paint your clothespins
When all is dry, glue clothespins to tray so that that open outwards; you may have to glue a couple at a time
