Check out all the Clothespin Craft Tutorials in this round up and make sure to leave your favorite in the comments.
They are inexpensive, easy to find, and when it comes to crafting the possibilities are endless…

I use clothes pins all the time….. Last night I used one to clip my linen on my cross-stitch hoop. I use them on me to remind myself I am in the middle of 3 things.
Such fun to see so many ways to use and decorate with clothes pins. I’ve used them for years to hang my laundry and I have different types of pins to hang different kinds of laundry. I know, who hangs their laundry anymore? – I do and save on our electric and gas bills besides how much nicer the sheets feel and smell. Our clothes are saved from the dryer stress and turn out so nice without wrinkles, no ironing. All week I keep smelling the sheets and pillowcases, so fresh, love it. Try it you might like it.
So now to those great other ideas for clothespins.

Here is pretty home decor post from using clothespins from one of our design team members that I love. If you type ‘clothespins’ into the search of our blog you’ll find even more ideas on using them. These are pre-designed with a sticker print in place! http://missfancypants.typepad.com/little_miss_fancy_pants/2013/10/focus-on-clothespins-with-yuki.html

I use clothespins to close my chip bags, cereal bags, cracker bags, etc. They keep things closed tight and fresh until I want to use the item again. I love clothespins! They remind me of my mother who always had a beautiful wash hung out on the line. Carla
We made planes with clothespins – we call them pegs here in Australia
This is a great round up. I love making stamped clothespins to use and give as gifts. http://organizeyourstuffnow.com/wordpress/stamped-clothespins I’ve also used them for place cards. http://organizeyourstuffnow.com/wordpress/day-3-clothespin-place-cards
…and I thought I was clever using them as bag clips.
