Welcome to a little something I like to call, "Make you holla MONDAY!" aka - Perfectly practical craft, completed in under $5!
I really struggled with what to blog about on this first REAL craft post! Something under $5...something I need to do anyway...something festive, and related to an upcoming holiday? Ummm.....HELLLLO!...how about all 3!?
Wooden clothespins, you know the ones....99-cent store for 100 of them! I'm using 12 of them...so 12cents.
FREE printable "Absolutely No Pinching" cutouts....um, FREE! (When you sign up for a TOTALLYworthIT email newsletter from HERE.)
HOT GLUE sticks...come on, you already have those!
Green solid (or print if you have it) fabric. I had this on hand, but I will calculate - $1.78/yard at the Good Ol' WallyWorld. Could not have used more than 25 cents worth.
Festive Irish-y ribbon. I got mine at Michael's for $1.50.
You can pretty much get this from the finished product pic, but here it is:
Glue ribbon on to the clothespin (being sure to tuck around edges. Next, glue on the fabric circle. (You can be as simple as pinking out a simple circle. I chose to cut a fabric strip, hand stitch through one side, and pull to cinch.) Finally, glue on your cardstock print-out. Voila!
Now that I think about it, I guess we can sum up this project like this...
Wooden Clothespins...12 cents
Hot Glue....25 cents
The irony of making a class full of preschoolers a "No PINCHING" shirt clip out of the perfect pinching tool.....PRICELESS!
