Easy, easy, easy! That’s what this project is/was. Easy. Today, I am sharing how to make a clothes pin rag wreath.
I made a burlap rag wreath a few years ago, and still have it. As a matter a fact I just moved it to the laundry room.
I been sprucing up the place and of course that means relocating things.
As far as the laundry room goes…well that is my least favorite room in the house. I’m betting it your least favorite as well. Such a daunting, never ending task.
Of course it would be, you step inside and it means, work, more work, fold, and back at it again the next day. Laundry is a never ending task we all must do. May as well make the place pleasant if you have to be there.
I will show you around there soon. It’s in the process of also being cleaned and organized. That room seems to be the catch all! Close the door and ignore the mess room. Considering it is off the kitchen, I thought a cute wreath on the closed door would be a nice cheery addition.
The supplies were simple.
A mini wire wreath form, I found at Michaels craft store. An old kitchen window valance, and a few packs of clothes pins from the dollar tree.
Some of the pics are a little fuzzy because I started this craft later on in the evening. I like to craft at night it seems, but that is not great for photo taking to show you. You get the gist. I had this old kitchen valance and thought it would be perfect to use as the rag part of the wreath.
First I clipped my clothes pins in sections
and then I filled in the spaces with the cut fabric.
As you can see you just randomly put the material in between the openings of the wire wreath and match it from end to end, then make a knot.
I cut the pieces about 10- 12 inches a piece. I wound up trimming the ends so you wouldn’t see the hemmed parts of the valance.
Embellished with a burlap and fabric flower I also found at Michaels. The fabric yellow flowers are actually glued onto clothes pins and the burlap flower is just a clip on. So this project required no sewing, and no hot glue gun. I always wind up burning a finger or two when I use that thing!
Just some clipping and tying knots of fabric.
Pretty darn cute if I do say so myself!Glad you stopped over today. If you are not a regular here, I sure would love to see you back again.

VERY cute! Love this idea for the laundry room!
How cute Debbie:) and love that it requires no glue gun. I burn myself everytime I get mine out.
Love the fact there’s no need for a glue gun! I have two small children at home and I can make this with my daughter. Make sure to also post it on my site under ‘home/decor’ as a DIY post….so, we can spread the word for ya!
How cute…I love it!!
Pretty darn cute? NO! Too darn cute, Debbie, too darn cute!!!
Very cute! I don’t know how you thought of it, but I like it a lot!
Wow that IS really cute! Only thing I will do differently is TEAR my fabric into strips:).
thanks for sharing!
Not only cute but thrifty, too. It looks great and I’m impressed that you kept and old valance and thought to use it.
It’s called being a hoarder lol!
That is so adorable, Debbie! We are in the process of painting the cabinetry in our home, and we are using the laundry room as our test ground, so I know something like this wreath will be just perfect when the painting is finished!
Well I am in love! I am pinning away ideas for my laundry/utility room as it is and now this wreath! I love it! My room is small but also it is attached to my carport so needless to say EVERYONE that is friends/family enter into my house that way! It has been so in NEED of a makeover! We are patching up things now with the ceiling and then a whole new makeover will begin! I would love to see more pics of your laundry room~ Thanks for sharing this wreath! I think even I can make this one! LOL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
Cute as a button! I have my grandmother’s clothespins and have been saving them foe something special- maybe this is ti!!
Did you tie the fabric on the same wire all the way around or mix up the placement?
Mixed it up and just made sure to fill in the gaps:)
Thanks….On my list of things to do today! Let you know how it turns out! Such a cute idea!

I just love how cute and simple that is Debbie! I have some extra clothespins that are sitting around and they could be looking so cute with this. I also love that you hung the little washboard in your laundry room. Thanks for the inspiration!
