Here's how to create a Star Ornament from Clothespins:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Clothespin Star Ornament, gather all supplies. Remove the metal spring from the wooden clothespins. Line up five clothespins in a V shape on your work surface, to create a star shape. Attach the wooden clothespin pieces together with a glue gun and glue sticks, using the photo as a template. TIP: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Paint the front and all sides of the clothespin star with light yellow acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry, and apply a second coat, if necessary. I love my Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have one coat coverage on most surfaces.
Place star onto light yellow craft felt and trace the outline with a marker. Carefully cut out the star shape from felt, cutting inside the traced lines for a clean, finished project. Trace each star separately because the shapes will vary slightly. Glue felt to the back of the star ornament.
Attach an assortment of gold tinsel pom poms into the center of each star with a glue gun and glue sticks. I love the different sizes available in this variety pack of gold tinsel pom poms.
To finish the Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Clothespin Star Ornament, cut a 24” length of natural jute twine, tie it in a 6” loop with a knot, and finish with a bow. Attach the loop and bow to the top of the back of the clothespin star ornament with a glue gun and glue sticks. This natural jute twine is available in the hardware section of Dollar Tree in a three pack for $1.25. I love the rustic touch that the twine adds to the ornament.
