Photo Holder using Sewing Pattern Flower…

May 11, 2009

I figured I should show you all how I decided to use the Sewing Pattern Flower I created last week. This simple photo holder will soon be sitting on a shelf in Terri’s apartment holding a photo of her and Laren.

Altered Jumbo Clothespin

Supplies Needed:
Jumbo Clothespin 6″ (The Tree House Studio)
Adirondack Metallics Arylic Paint Dabber in Gold
DecoArt Crackling Medium (Weathered Wood)

Cream Felt
Embroidery Floss (DMC 543)
ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink (Creamy Brown)

Tools Needed:
Paint Brush
Sewing Needle

  • Paint the jumbo clothespin front and back using a Gold Adirondack Metallics Arylic Paint Dabber, let dry
  • Once the paint is dry using a paintbrush cover the gold paint with DecoArt Crackling Medium in Weathered Wood, let dry
  • Once the Crackling Medium is dry using a paintbrush, paint over the crackling medium on the front and back as well as the sides and inside of the clothespin with Black Acrylic Paint, let dry
  • Attach your Sewing Pattern Flower and embroidered felt leaf to your altered clothespin using a strong adhesive or hot glue gun
  • Type or print your sentiment, cut out the words, ink edges using ColorBox Fluild Chalk Ink (Creamy Brown), attach to Jumbo Clothes Pin
  • Clip a photo into the top portion of your altered clothespin
