{DIY} Christmas Gifts - Mod Podge Clothespins

This little project kind of fell into my lap. I saw it in my reads, and I've been wanting to mod podge clothespins. Now I had a reason to do it. I had all the supplies on hand so it was not only cute, but cheap. I got the idea from this blog, and I changed it up a bit.

Clothespins, cardstock, Mod Podge, foam brush, exacto knife.

For this project, I printed out some words on cardstock in a font I liked. I looked through a bunch of free fonts online and found one that I liked.

I left enough room between each word so that I could cut them out, and left enough room to podge a clothespin on top of the word.

I let them dry for a few hours, and then cut them out using my exacto knife. I swiped on a coat of podge over the top and sides of the paper, and let dry.

I printed out some cardstock to clip the clothespins to, and that was it. Simple, cheap, and fast.

After printing your titles, you said that you let them "dry for a few hours". Did I miss a step? I am a newbie here.

I mod podged the titles to the clothes pins and let them dry before the next step. Hope this clarifies.
