Pretty doll garland using clothespins

Michele, Denise (nieces) and I made these some years ago. It’s pretty self-explanatory how they were made. We painted the little clothespins and then wrapped fabric around them to dress them. Then we threaded buttons onto the wire, tied a few red bows from fabric, and glued on the little clothespin dolls. Easy.

I did a post on this a few years ago but I thought repeating it might be a good thing since we didn’t have very many followers back then..
Best wishes,
Guess what? I went to My Live Signature and made a pretty name for the end of my posts. Cool, huh? Very easy to do. The girl over at Stardust had a tutorial on how to do this. It really doesn’t work in Live Writer, but I saved a picture of my name and then just add it in. Something new. It’s nice.
