Handmade Ornaments Day 3 : Clothes Pin Star (Tree topper)

Hi Friends,

How is the preparation for the big holiday coming along? Are you all done with last minute Christmas decorations and ready for gatherings with family and friends?

Here is another handmade ornament tutorial using Clothes pin. Very simple, easy on money ornament. I had some Clothes Pin at home left over from one of the projects for Laundry (yet to be posted). I made a star tree topper using the clothes pin. If you have smaller pins you could use them as ornaments too, since I had little bigger,I just made a big star.

All that I had to do is remove the spring, arrange them like star and hot glue. I finished it with in Blue paint and dry brushed the gold paint. Next time, I might paint all of it just gold, for now, its ok :)


Hope you like it!!

Thanks and have a blessed day!!

  4. I always love fragrances.Especially, in Christmas its must for me. Because, there will be lots of people, who will come in my place. I do live in India. I was looking for a wood oil diffuser. I was searching online one day, I got best essential Oils for aromatherapy . Though first I was not sure about there quality and shipping method. I checked and seen that they ship worldwide, which was the best part about them. Even they have money return policy for not giving the proper item. I ordered online and after getting delivery, I was amazed by the quality. They were so good and work properly as claimed. I am highly satisfied with my product and service.
