How do you welcome Spring? This year my welcome includes clothespins and craft tape!
Hey there! My name is Trish and I blog over at By Trish Sutton where I share simplicity for the home including simple crafts, easy recipes and must have reviews. I am excited to be here today sharing my love of spring with a simple Spring Wreath made out of Clothespins and Craft Tape.
While I know that there is still evidence of winter across the country, here in the desert southwest our highs have been in the 80s for more than two weeks. I happen to be one of the few who did not welcome the 80s with open arms. If I had my way cooler temps would have hung around a little longer, alas, I have given in to the sunshine and have embraced spring a little early.
With each season a new wreath finds it’s way onto the front door of our home. And since it appears spring is here to stay the time had come for me to update our entry. I did so with clothespins and craft tape.
Spring Wreath: Clothespins and Craft Tape
Craft Ring (10″-12″)
100 Wood Clothespins
2 Rolls of Craft Tape
Jute or String
Scissors and/or Xacto Knife
This fun Spring Wreath is as simple as it looks! First, paint one side of the craft ring so that it can dry while you prepare (near) 100 Clothespins.
While the ring is drying attach tape to the flat side of each clothespin, press it down firmly then cut the tape to size. If your tape ends up being wider than your clothespins use a pair of sharp scissors or an Xacto knife to trim the edges.
It is important to decide on the design that you would like to achieve before you add tape to all of your clothespins. When I began creating my Spring Wreath I thought that I wanted to use four different rolls of tape.
However, after trying a few different patterns I decided the design I liked best was two different rolls, placing them two by two around my craft ring. Be sure to attach the clothespins close together leaving no gap between them.
Once your craft ring has transformed into a Clothespin Wreath create a hanger by tying a piece of jute (or string) between two clothespins.
Finally, create a bow with your Wide Ribbon then attach it to the wreath. I secured my bow by threading the jute through the back of the bow. A few dots of hot glue would also do the trick. And there you have a Spring Wreath ready to welcome warmer weather & Easter visitors.
