Cute clothes pins

Everything should be pretty in my opinion. Why not your clothes pins? We use a lot of clothes pins around the Hatley house for all kinds of things. I got tired of looking at boring wooden clothes pins and decided to make em' fancy! My little girl even helped with this and had a great time doing so!

Here is what you need:

scrapbook paper
mod podge
clothes pins
sponge paint brush

Trace each side of your clothes pin with your pencil onto the scrapbook paper. Cut them out and use your mod podge to glue them onto the clothes pin. Let them dry and now your clothes pins are fancy too!

Even your clothes pins should be fancy!

Redneck Wine Glass

Redneck Wine glass

adorable huh?
 I have been making these and giving them to my girlfriends along with a bottle of wine!
Super easy to make....lemme tell ya how!

Regular mason jar
candle stick {mine are from the dollar tree}
and glue {make sure it's craft glue for glass that is dishwasher safe}
sand paper

Sand paper the top of the candle stick and the bottom of the jar. Apply the glue around the top of the candle stick and stick it to your jar. [ I always turn my jar upside down so I can press the candle stick down on the jar ] Let it sit and dry
 TADA that's it!
You can make this fancy if you like depending on the person you are giving it to. Make it your own, be creative!

Go make some, they are great gifts!
