Hi everyone!  I have a super easy project for you.  Gold and Silver metallic clothespin stars is a project anyone can do – it’s that easy!  Great for making garlands, ornaments or as a display.

I purchased 2 packages of clothespins at the Dollar Store.  To make each star you will need 8 wooden clothespins.

Remove the metal piece by sliding the wooden piece sideways.  They come apart pretty easily.

Using hot glue, run a bead of glue down the back side of one wooden piece and attach it to the backside of another wooden piece.   Glue all your pieces together.

Once you have constructed your star, you can paint and/or decorate them any way you choose.  I’ve seen one blogger use wood stain.  I choose to spray paint mine silver and gold.

Love how they look hanging on the banister and they’ll look even better after the green Christmas garland has been added.

    These look great! I saw this on my Facebook feed just now and had to stop by to tell you I just finished making some of these yesterday. Great minds think alike??! I love how simple they are, too. They look great on your banister. I'm planning to use them as tree ornaments.
