A Kindergarten Smorgasboard Monday Made: GLITTER Clothespins!

Today is the first day I have touched my computer in 4 days!  We had such a great time in Gatlinburg this weekend!  Did you see those pictures???  Yeah.  That much fun! It's great to get away and relax and release, but it's also nice to be home!

Today is Monday Made It and that means it's time for another Kindergarten Smorgasboard How To Video!

You know I love all things glitter.  I would probably glitter The CEO of The Kindergarten Smorgasboard if he would sit still long enough...but alas...I'll settle for clothespins!

Wooden clothespins
Modge Podge

First, paint 1 side of your clothes pin with modge podge.

Next, cover in glitter and shake off the excess.  Allow to dry completely.

Then, you will paint over the glitter with more modge podge.  This is what keeps the glitter from shedding and multiplying and getting into your hair, clothes, shoes, socks, nose, ears, etc.

And BAM  glitter clothespins with no mess!

And here is the how to video!  Check out the new artwork in the video!!

  1. Awesome idea to bling them out with glitter! I am going to make these and then glue pushpins to the back of them so I can attach them to the wall and display student artwork. My next project!

  2. Great video! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Love the glitter clothespins! They're on my to do list...that seems to keep growing every Monday!

  4. OHHHHH I just had an idea while watching! I only have a bulletin board "stip" in the hall to hang student work/art. Thus I end up using lots of sticky tack to put it all over the walls. I think i will make some glitter clothespins, hotglue a thumbtack on the back and these will look fabulous in the hall to hang artwork! No holes in student artwork!

  5. LOL. Of course your project involved glitter! It came out great.
