Does everyone have their Christmas tree up? We have a real tree this year and put it up this past weekend. In honor of the trimming of the tree, and Christmas in general because fun! We’re sharing this darling Clothespin Christmas Tree Craft!
Our Clothespin Christmas Tree Craft is a lot of fun, because you can decorate it however you want. More poms! More pipe cleaners! More stars! More of more!
For our Clothespin Christmas Tree Craft you will first and foremost need clothespins. The regular wooden kind that you pinch open. You will need to twist the clothespins to remove their metal spring. You will also need paint and glue. Then to decorate, you will need a variety of pipe cleaners, pom poms, and glitter stars. Finish with a loop of twine or ribbon to hang your Clothespin Christmas Tree Craft from your actual Christmas tree!
