DIY Clothes Pin Magnets

Hi, You Crafty People, welcome to our little blog. Come with me. I want to share something with you that Cole has been working on.

This week we are featuring DIY Clothes Pin Magnets. It was first posted on Young Mommy Memoirs in March 2013.

Now let's take a look and imagine the possibilities with this cute project.


These cute clothes pin magnets are so easy to make!


  • Wood Clothes Pins
  • Paint - colour of your choice
  • Paper - coordinating pattern with paint colour
  • Magnets
  • White Glue

All you need are wooden clothespins, paint, white glue, paper and magnets.Nicole decided to paint these clothespins pink and yellow, and added cute small floral pattern paper for a cute cottage chic, springtime look.


  1. Paint your clothespins, if you'd like. Plain ones look really nice, too.
  2. Cut your paper to fit the top of the clothespins.
  3. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper onto the clothes pin with white glue.
  4. Stick a magnet strip on the back.
  5. And you're done!

Are you thinking about making your own Clothes Pin Magnets? Or do you have a different idea for hanging your important papers on the fridge? We would like to read your ideas.

  1. These are so cute and such a great idea. I think I'll be making these. :)

    1. Hi Susan,
      Thanks, they look nice on holding up my granddaughters art work on the refrigerator.

      Bye for now, Darlene

    1. Thanks Satah for the compliment and for hosting the linky party.

  4. These are so cute. I found an entire bag of wooden clothes pins the other day!
    Now I know what I'm doing with them. My granddaughters will love this.

    We're having a party at Tumbleweed Contessa and these would be a great hit. Hope you will bring them over.


    1. You hit the jackpot didn't you. That's exactly how my daughter,Cole felt when she found my bag of clothes pins gathering dust.

      Thanks for the invite, I will be hopping on over to the party.

  5. So glad you shared at Give Me The Goods Monday!!

  6. Loved this project! It will be featured tomorrow on my blog:

    1. Hi Jenna, Thanks, I'm glad you like the magnets. And honored that you will feature them on your blog. I will definitely check it out tomorrow. Thanks again, Darlene

  7. I'm jealous, if I want cute crafts posted on my blog, I have to find a guest author or ask my 9 year old daughter to make one of her creations, lol! I found you on FF and am glad that I stopped by. :) I will show this post to my DD as I am sure that she would love to make them!


  8. These are so cute! What a great idea- my children would love this craft:)

    1. They are cute, aren't they. They look so much nicer on the fridge than the pizza advertising magnets holding up the grandbabies art work.

  9. Such pretty colors! What a fun way to brighten up the front of the fridge.

  10. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a lovely comment.

  11. Oh my goodness, I agree, so cute and so easy! That's my kind of craft project!
