3″ birch pillar (found at Michael’s Craft Store)
3/16″ drill bit
1 3/4″ wooden spring clothespins
1 – 36″ x 3/16″ wooden dowel (cut into 3 different lengths of 7″, 9″, 11″)
1. Glue your wooden clothespins and dowels together by adding a small line of glue on the outside, bottom half of the clothespin, hold the pin and top 1″ of the dowel together for a minute to help set, and then set aside to allow ample time for the dowel and pin to completely set together. Repeat for each of your dowels and wooden spring clothespins.
These would be cute for some sort of wedding display, maybe holding table numbers along with pictures of the couple, or for birthdays with pictures of the celebrant, or just displayed in your home showing off some special mementos! We take tons of polaroid pictures, so this is where we display a couple of our current favorites. I only did 3 dowels and pins, but there is definitely room to do 5, so if you have more you want to display, by all means, drill more holes! I prefer things displayed in odd numbers, so I would suggest doing either 3 or 5, but I think if you had more than 5, it would look much too crowded.
