Spring is a time to try something new. Try my Spring Clothespin Wreath for a twist that’s fun and fresh.
I’ve gotten into the habit of making a new wreath for every major change of the season.
But I was getting bored. Time to mix things up!
I came across this fun clothespin wreath from Grow Creative and thought, what if I switched it up a bit.
Rather than painting the clothespins, I thought I’d try crafting tape — and I couldn’t be happier with the results!

DIY Tutorial to Make Clothespin Wreath
Making a clothespin wreath is rather easy.
Crafting tape is usually thin enough that you won’t need to trim the sides.
However, the decorated tape is wider than the clothespins.
It’s simple enough to trim the tape along the edge of the clothespin once you have it on.
Just a quick snip and it’s done.
Just be sure you have a good pair of scissors.
Start by deciding what kind of pattern you want to make.
I decided that I wanted to do two by two for the colors.
But you could just as easily do one of each pin to make a pattern around the ring.
Take your floral craft ring and start placing the clothespins around.
Be sure to keep the clothespin close together so there’s no gap around the inner part of the wreath.
I liked the natural wood showing on the clothespins for the wreath.
And actually, when you step away, you really only notice the color on top of the clothespins.
When you’re done, add some thick ribbon to hang it from.
Be sure to leave some length for the ribbon to hang down.
It adds a touch of softness to the clothespin wreath.
You could also easily add some fabric flowers to the edge of the wreath to add a little something extra.
But I’m quite pleased with the pop of color. Welcome to our home, Spring!
The whole process took me about two hours (and approximately 76 clothespins) — but that’s with two boys constantly interrupting me.
So I’m guessing if you can actually focus, you’ll easily get this clothespin wreath completed within an hour.
