Paint project

I decided to paint some ornaments for a friend's birthday present.

I bought them like this.

Then I painted them.

Then I whitewashed them to tone the color down.

From the depths of the scrap bin.

Look what you can find in the scrap bin, forgotten squares become a baby quilt.

Clothespin snowflakes

 This is what I started with, as well as my hot glue gun and white paint.

The first thing you have to do is pull all the clothespins apart.

 Then you put the clothespins back to back and glue them. Then glued all the pairs to together.

Then you paint them. I then added a hanger.
I made some of these from medium-sized clothespins and they look good too.

 My friend did these Rudolphs
