DIY glitter mini clothes pins

Do you know how hard it is to be in Canada with the existance of the hashtag targetdoesitagain? (um, also, #firstworldproblems). Sandals and tops and dresses and belts, all of which I can’t find at my local store. And the dollar bins. Don’t even get me started. Damn you instagram and your cute mason jars and cards and pens and file folders and tabs and sticky notes. None of which I need.

It seems alltheaccessories have been walking across the border because lo and behold, a bunch have made it to my Target in the last 2 weeks.

There should have also been gold stars because I picked up a bunch of things for the bestie’s birthday gift but managed to restrain myself to only a pack of ($1!!) mini clothes pins. For all my iddy biddy clothes.

Or to trash up and use on my cork board. Either or.

What you’ll need:

  • clothes pins; regular or mini (these mini ones are currently in dollar bins at most Target stores)
  • glue
  • glitter (I use creatology from Michaels)

How to:

Spread a thin layer of glue onto the clothes pin with your finger (or dab in glue and wipe off excess)

Immediately dip into glitter

Allow to dry, spray with spray adhesive or hair spray. Repeat on other side if you want (I’m using them on a cork board, so, just left the other side as it)

If you don’t have iddy biddy clothes, they look great on a real life pinterest board!
