For some reason I seem to have an abundance of clothespins, which also lead to another easy craft I did this weekend. To use the clothespins as a stocking holder, I put a quick coat of spray paint (Rust-O-Leum Champagne Mist) on them first and then let dry. Once dry, I attached them to the mantle with 3M Damage Free Double-Sided Tape. I have used this tape every year on the mantle and they have left no damage when I take down my decorations in January.
I freehanded the shape of the light bulb and then traced and cut it out on the different scrapbook paper. I decided to color in the top part to make it look more like the socket of the light bulb. I then used Tacky Glue to attach the paper to the clothespin. Attached the clothespin to the string and hung it in our kitchen.
I do have another craft up my sleeve for Christmas that doesn't involve clothespins and I hope to share it with you all soon!! For now, happy decorating!!
With much love,
