My daughter and I like a good clothespin craft. We’ve made several different kinds before (tutorials to come). This time, we wanted to share a cute clothespin craft we made out of fabric Duck Brand Tape and some Washi tape. You can use them to decorate, embellish, or even just play with! I think they would be cute sitting in a plant or clipped to a school notebook. Here is how we made our dragonfly clothespin craft for kids.
- Washi Tape
- Fabric Duck Brand Tape
- Wiggly eyes
A small Washi tape roll cut in half length wise is the perfect size for two clothespins. We picked a pretty blue pattern and taped it to the top of each clothespin.
Next cut a strip of fabric tape at approximately 3.5” in length. I eyeballed it. Fold it, leaving a small section of the adhesive side open as shown. We love this pink, white, and gray pattern.
It should look like this.
Fold it again in half lengthwise with the sticky side out.
Cut out your wings. Repeat steps 2-4 with a slightly longer piece.
The wings will stick nicely onto the inside of the clothespin and you should still be able to open and close it without the two sides sticking together. We also added small adhesive wiggly eyes to our clothespin dragonflies. Aren’t the adorable??
We hope you like it!
