Heart Clothespin Valentines

My daughter and I have been making clothespin crafts lately {airplane clothespins & caterpillar clothespins}. I had some left over and thought it’d be fun to make heart clothespin valentines.  When you turn a heart sideways it looks like lips so I printed little tags that say “Smooch. Muah. Kiss.” Here is how I made them.

Materials:

  • Clothespins
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Paper cutter or scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint brush
  • Computer and printer

Instructions:

I picked some pretty pink scrapbook paper with a light print, cut them to size with a paper cutter and glued and sealed them with Mod Podge.  This is the bottom of the clothespin. I let them dry completely.

I printed “Smooch. Muah. Kiss.” on it in different fonts on the same pink paper and I cut them out to fit on the clothespins for the top half.

I put Mod Podge directly on the clothes pin, the tag I made on top, and then sealed it with another layer of Mod Podge on top of that. Allow it to dry for about fifteen minutes.

While those were drying I cut out hearts and cut them in half.

I Mod Podged the heart on the side of the clothespin and sealed it with more Mod Podge on top.

The possibilities are endless with this little craft. You can make different sayings, similar to conversation hearts or make them more personalized.  I thought these would also be cute with lips instead of a heart.
