Hello again, savvy savers! Today finds us with another Organizational Ideas Post, and this time the Clothespin Greeting Card Organizer Wreath! This project, made exclusively with dollar Tree Materials, and around the house items you are sure to have on hand! This project is as simple as can be, and can be made for under $5.00!
Here’s how to make it:
- Metal Pliers
- Metal Coat Hanger
- Spray Paint
- 1/2″ Ribbon
- Faux Floral Foam Cranberries
- Newspaper Sheet
- Using metal pliers or snips, deconstruct a metal coat hanger, and reconfigure it into a circle; you are aiming at 10″ in diameter to create a wreath form.
- Affix one end of the wreath, leaving one end open.
- Next, spray paint your clothespins over newspaper; I used green to resemble evergreen, but any color would work, too!
- Once your clothespins are dry, usually around one hour, you are now ready to create your wreath.
- To create the wreath, alternate foam berries and the clothespins to the wreath form.
- Clothespins will be secure but able to freely open.
- Be sure to leave one inch at the top of the wreath.
- Close the remaining one once inch of the wreath closed, with pliers.
- Affix a ribbon in front of the top closure; the ribbon will need both a bow, and a loop behind the ribbon, which will act as a hanging strip as well.
- Add your greeting cards, notes, and photos!
Please note, I generally leave my cards attached to my wreaths annually, and store them, wrapped in recycled holiday tissue paper for the next holiday season! These wreaths are so versatile and could look awesome in so many areas, and would also make unique, affordable hostess gifts this holiday season, too!
Here’s to the season,
