Difficulty level: Beginner
Time to complete: 45 Minutes
Age range: 8 and Up *Younger ages may substitute craft glue

Things you’ll need:
Wooden Clothespins
Red and Blue Acrylic Paint
Foam Brush
Wooden Star Cutouts
Wire Wreath Frame
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Things to do:
1. The first step is painting your clothespins. You’ll need roughly 20 blue clothespins and 60 red clothespins to cover a large wire wreath frame.

2. Next, you’re going to start clipping your clothespins onto your wreath form. You’ll need to choose a pattern for your stripes and stick to it – For my wreath form, I pinned 4 reds, 5 naturals, and 4 reds for each section on the top bar and 2 reds, 4 naturals, and 2 reds on the bottom. Repeat this pattern until the entire wreath form is covered, leaving one section of the wreath form for all blue clothespins.

3. To complete your wreath, use hot glue to add wooden stars to the section of blue clothespins.
