Vintage Clothespins…Pretty & Practical

 

vintage-flowered-clothespinsGood morning!

I hope you’ve been having a great week!

Today I have a fun, little something simple to share with you. I just love these vintage, hard plastic clothes pins! The colors are so vibrant, and I’m just a sucker for retro, hard plastic. They are cute on their own, but I found a way to make them a bit more Springy and feminine, and turn them into a great gift topper.

Vintage forget-me-nots always remind me of Spring-they are so sweet and simple. To make a bouquet of them, I adhered them to a vintage plastic cake candle holder and then adhered that to the clothes pin. A bow made from lace ribbon tops it off.

As for the gift bag, this is a vintage wax sandwich bag. Another one of my favorite things! Just love how they turn brown over time, and its always satisfying hearing that crinkle sound. To dress it up a bit, I stitched vintage laces across the top, also tying the colors together. And, the vintage clothes pin keeps it closed!

So, a simple idea to turn something entirely practical into something pretty!

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Creating!
