DIY Glitter Clothespins

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (mrsjoy2) you know that I decided to get crafty the other night. 

Earlier this week, I pinned an image from this post on DI-Myself. 
Her directions and tutorial for creating glitter clothespins is amazing. 
I love the way she turned hers into magnets. 

It was so easy to complete and fairly neat (which is hard to do with glitter). 
I never would have thought of using double sided tape to make the glitter stick. it worked really well. 

I decided to use  my new glitter clothespins to display cards from some of favorite people. 
I am still trying to decide if I like it hanging from our mantle (your thoughts?). 

I have decided that I love the glitter clothespins and think they will be perfect to display student work in my classroom next year. It will make it much easier to change out their work. 

If you try this out please let me know! I would love to see your final product.

These are really cute! As a future teacher, I agree with you-- this will be a great way to display student work. I'm definitely go to make some.
