Valentine’s Day Clothespin Wreath

I love decorating for Valentine’s Day! As a Mom of two boys, I rarely get a chance to work with pink so I snatched this cute Echo Park paper up as soon as I saw it! I knew that I would be able to figure out something fun to do with it!  This Valentine’s Day clothespin wreath is easy to create and only requires a few inexpensive supplies…

I started off by taking all of the clothes pegs apart to paint them and painted half in a light pink and the other half in a darker pink.

I chose three patterns of paper from the “Be Mine” Echo Park line and cut strips to fit on the front of the clothes pegs.  They were then decoupaged on with Modge Podge.  The fun part, or course, was putting the clothes pegs all back together – I still cannot feel my left index finger!
For the wreath frame, just take a wire clothes hanger and bend it into the shape of a heart.

I then bent a loop in the top hook of the hanger and covered it with ribbon to hang.

Well, the kids and I are off to create some more Valentine’s projects {this time a little more kid friendly!}  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!!
