Super Easy Clothespin Stars

Don't have a lot of time to make Christmas Decorations? This is the project for you. Using wooden clothespins and a hot glue gun, you can make one of these in minutes!
I purchased two packages of wooden clothespins from the Dollar Store.
remove the metal piece by sliding the wooden pieces to the side. They come apart pretty easily.
Glue the two wooden pieces together on the straight (back) side.
Glue the wooden pieces you made together.
Here are 8 clothespins glued together to make a star.
I decided to paint mine Silver and Gold. I used spray paint. You could paint these any color you choose.
I added a piece of twine and hung mine from my banister.
I will add my green Christmas garland to finish off the look.

      Click and drag to highlight the instructions and hit "copy image". Then open a word doc and when you are in, hit "paste". You should get the photos, too. But, they might be big so if you want them smaller, click on the image and you will see little "bubbles" on the corners and in the center of each sides and top and bottom. Place your curser on the corner bottom and drag it toward the opposite corner. Your image will get smaller. When you are done, hit exit, it will ask you if you want to save changes. Click yes, name it and you can print it out. Hope that helps!!
