DIY Primitive Decor – Make your Own Primitive Cinnamon Clothespin Fixin’s

August 19, 2009 by Jessica Christman  
Filed under DIY Primitive Decor

These old fashioned clothespins are the perfect touch for your prim fixins’ and primitive decor! These clothespins are very grungy and have that wonderful country primitive smell. These primitive clothespins are are really easy to make and are really primitive looking! For this primitive decor clothespin project you will need one package of clothespins, candle making wax, cinnamon oil scent (or scent of your choice), antiquing medium, liquid gel dye (optional), glitter (optional – if you wish to make holiday clothespins), and wax paper.

1. Applying the antiquing medium – take each clothespin and cover them lightly with the antiquing medium using a soft cloth or paper towel.
2. Next you will want to melt the candle making wax. You may do this by purchasing a double broiler. You may also make your own by combing a smaller pan within a larger pan. Be sure that you place water in the larger pan and be on the watch that the water doesn’t evaporate. Once the candle making wax has melted you may add the liquid gel dye (optional), and cinnamon oil scent (or scent of your choice).
3. Lay your antiqued clothespins on the wax paper and pour the melted scented wax over the clothespins. Let clothespins dry. You can bundle a few clothespins together with cheese cloth or scraps of fabric to add the finishing touches or just throw a few clothespins in your favorite primitive fixins’!

To make your clothespins even more primitive and grungy you can also roll the clothespins in cinnamon while the candle making wax is still wet. You can use this same technique with the glitter to make more of a holiday decoration.
