I was inspired while reading my new issue of Country Living, which is exactly what I was hoping would happen. I had been mulling around some Thanksgiving placard ideas, when this came to me…and I love it. With a little Mod Podge and scrapbook paper or fabric, you can transform the humdrum into the adorable! There are so many things you can do with them, and here are just a few.

PLACARD HOLDERS


I can’t wait to use these on our Thanksgiving table! I plan to tie ribbon around the napkins, then clip these on.

CHRISTMAS CARD HOLDER

I love displaying Christmas cards by hanging them with clothespins on a piece of jute or twine, then stringing it across a mantel or window. This will just spice it up a little–so cute!

DECORATIVE MAGNET


Just add a magnet to the back, and voila! You’ve got a darling way to jazz up your magnet board, or refrigerator.

ITEMS YOU NEED:

-clothespins
-scrapbook paper (or fabric)
-Mod Podge

DIRECTIONS:

-Trace your clothespin onto the back of your scrapbook paper, then cut out.
-Using a foam brush, brush the Mod Podge onto the clothespin, then place the scrapbook paper over it. Add another layer of Mod Podge on top. Let dry.
-If desired, add a magnet to the back.

That’s it! How simple!!

  5. if you have little ones try doing them in fabric with a waterproof spray, then hanging up their very own clothesline for swimsuits and towels. Or give a lesson in how to hand wash clothes and let them "do laundry" with their very own special clothespins :)

  6. I love this! I'm featuring it on my blog today and trying it out! I'm a newbie, so it will be my very first Mod Podge project! Thanks so much for sharing it!
