Easter wreath with clothes pins

I have created clothes pin wreaths before for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I really like how fun and easy they are to make, so I decided to add one more holiday to the pot — Easter! This time, instead of using just paint to decorate the clothes pins, I used a really cute Easter bunny fabric I found. (Try Hancock Fabrics for some cute options.) You’re probably wondering how on Earth I managed to decorate clothes pins with fabric, but fortunately I’m here to tell you!

To prepare my fabric, I coated it in Fabric Mod Podge just like I did when I made Little Jo’s Disney pin display board.  While the fabric was drying, I painted all of my clothes pins with a pale yellow acrylic paint by Plaid, called “Pineapple”. Little Jo was really nice and helped me paint all 50 clothes pins.

The next step involved a little measuring and cutting. I needed tiny pieces of fabric that would just cover the top of the clothes pins. I cut the fabric pieces just a smidge big to make sure they would cover the whole clothes pin. The coat of Fabric Mod Podge makes it so easy to cut the fabric without it fraying. I attached the fabric to the clothes pins with more Mod Podge, but since I plan on hanging this on my front door, I used Outdoor Mod Podge this time.

Once everything was dry, I just clipped my clothes pins to a 12″ wire wreath frame. I used 50 clothes pins this time, leaving room at the top for my bow. You will need about 54 or so if you don’t want to add a bow.

I used Chica’s bow tying tutorial to make a large bow in a coordinating ribbon for the top. Doesn’t it look festive?
