Clothespin Starburst Wall Hanging

- DIY, Repurpose

I loved the variation in color of the old clothespins and thought they would make a pretty starburst wall hanging.

I began by hot gluing 12 of the clothespins on a round piece of wood I had in my garage.

I then glued a second circle of clothespins in the spaces between the first circle.

I finished the starburst with one last circle of clothespins that fit snugly in the spaces between the first and second circles.

I roamed around my garage looking for something that could be added to the middle of the starburst (and yes, my garage is that full of stuff) and I came across a doorknob and doorknob collar that were a good fit.  I used E-6000 glue to adhere these to the clothespin starburst.

I then glued a hanger on the back and hung it in my bedroom.

The doorknob makes this a useful piece.  I can add a hanger….
