A Dozen Uses for DIY Photo Clips and How to Make Them
Today I want to share a tutorial for DIY photo clips. I love these things! You can use them for SO many things. I have a few clipped on to my chicken wire memo board I made. I also like to make them to use as gift tags and magnets, or you can even add a magnet on the back and stick it to your refrigerator to hang your child’s artwork. Here is how you make these adorable DIY photo clothespins.
How to Make Them
Time: 15 Minutes
- Wood Cutouts
- Mod Podge or White Glue
- Foam Paint Brush
- Hot Glue and Hot glue Gun
- Print out your favorite photos on your printer. You may have to resize them to make sure they fit properly onto your wood cutout. Using a pen, trace the wood cutout onto your photo.
- Cut out your photo. It fits best if you cut just inside the traced line.
- Using a foam brush, glue on your photo with Mod Podge. If desired, you can place a coat or two of Mod Podge on top of your photo as well.
- Hot glue a clothespin to the back of your photo.
Use them anywhere you like, such as gift tags, party favor closures, memo holders, and magnets!
