Love Note Clothespin Wreath Instructions

Step 1: Placement

Start by placing your undecorated clothespins around the wreath frame. You will want to figure out how many you need AND make sure they will fit just how you want them. I chose to have the clamp ends face out of the circle to have more room. However you choose – just make sure you are consistent to have them all face the same way!Love Note Clothespin Wreath Washi Tape

Step 2: Choose your washi tape! 

I have FALLEN IN LOVE with wash tape. If you haven’t used it yet – you have got to try it on all of your craft projects. There are oodles of colors, patterns and styles to choose from and a variety in sizing. For this project I found this website where you didn’t need to buy the entire roll, but a few yards – EXACTLY what I needed for this type of project. I was able to my more patterns and didn’t have too much extra. Warning: you might get addicted. There are so many to choose from!

Step 3: Washi-ize your clothespins

It is time to give those boring clothespins a makeover! Add your wash tape to your clothespins. Even though clothespins are typicality 3/8″ wide I went with the 1/2″ (15 mm) tape so I could wrap the edges. It was JUST the right size. It was so incredibly easy to place the tape, cut and wrap around the edges.

Step 4: Get Creative!

I went for a color scheme or reds and pinks (typical Valentine/love colors) and got creative with the patterns. I even found these fun jewel stickers at my local craft store and added those too! I think they added a nice touch. You can get creative with what you want to add to make it personal to you!

  1. Sarina girl, this is fabulous! I am loving the gorgeous tape. I am checking that out asap! The printables are gorgeous and I can’t wait to make this!!! xox

  2. I’m sure I could get some Sharpies (I already have these!) and decorate the clothes pins as well. May help out with the budget some. 🙂

  3. I’m doing this this Valentine’s and I can’t wait to see his reaction each day. This is such a great idea! Do you glue the ribbon on the back of the heart? That’s the only thing I can’t tell how it was done. Thanks!

    1. For the heart in the center, I used double-sided tape and attached the heart to one end of the ribbon, strung the ribbon through the wreath and attached the other end of the ribbon back to the heart. I hope that makes sense!

  4. I got a grapevine wreath and just attaching the clothes pins around it with the first letter of our names wrapped in red ribbon and some sparkly ribbon woven through the grapevine. Because glitter and sparkles make everything perfect. Leaving this for him to find when he comes home from his business trip with the first 7 days notes on it as I will be gone that long.

  5. I love this idea and am in the process of making this right now! :)They were out of the wire wreaths but I found a flat 12″ wood crafting wreath that I painted pink. Instead of the tape I am cutting out various colors/patterns of scrapbook paper to modge podge to the clothespins and found some cute heart ribbon to hang the wreath with. Can’t wait to give it to my hubby!
