Sophia's clothespin wreath

Are your kids driving you crazy yet this summer?  Today's project is an easy one to do with kids.  It will keep them busy for a long time... and it will look awfully cute hanging up in your laundry room... or on your front door!

I did this project with my 3 year old niece Sophia.  From the pose above, I think she has been watching too many episodes of toddlers and tiaras.  I'm lucky enough to have her living right down the street from me.  She and her brother looooove crafts.  They like to "help" when they come over.  

To make this wreath you will need a couple bags of wooden clothespins.  Cut up a bunch of scrapbook paper to fit the top of the clothespins.  You can pick a color scheme or just use up scraps.  Glue the little strips to each clothespin... just plain old elmer's is fine.  Look at Sophia's cute little pudgy hands above.

When you think you have enough, pin them around the edge of a wooden wreath form.  I painted this one orange.  

Finished!  I just love this project.  I think I've given away at least 10 of these this year.  Come back tomorrow to see more crafts you can do with your kids!
