Cheap Clothespins to Star-Spangled Wreath

Shannah blogs at Just Us Four.  She recently used some cheap, ordinary clothespins to make a show-stopping wreath for July Fourth!

To start, Shannah wrapped a flat wreath form in ribbon.  Then she super glued clothespins all the way around the wreath, giving it a sunburst look.  Shannah alternated three patriotic, coordinating washi tape rolls and attached a piece of tape to each clothespin.  After trimming the tape to fit the clothespins, she brushed on a little mod podge to seal the tape.  A star-spangled scarf from the dollar store was the perfect way to hang Shannah’s festive wreath!  I don’t know about you, but I’m in love with this simple and inexpensive wreath idea!  Way to go, Shannah!
