- 12 Spring-Type Clothespins
- Craft Glue or Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Paint Brush
Start out by painting the yard stick and the clothespins whatever color or colors you like. Let them dry.
Glue the clothespins onto the yard stick, spacing them evenly, about every 3-inches. Glue them so they are perpendicular to the yard stick and also alternate the side the pinching part of the clothespin is on. Let the glue dry.
At this time, you can decorate your stick however you like. You can decorate it using ribbons and bows or paint or write a special message down the yard stick. You can also decorate it with other craft supplies you have on hand like rhinestones, buttons, or glitter.
