Design your own clothespin magnets to display your art projects or good grades for everyone to see.

What You'll Need:

  • Thin cardboard or poster board
  • Markers
  • Blunt scissors
  • Trims such as tulle netting, fabric scraps, and glitter
  • Magnet strips
  • Craft glue
  • Pinch clothespins

How to Make Clothespin Magnets:

Step 1: Draw a ballerina shape on a piece of cardboard or poster board and cut it out.

Step 2: To decorate your figure, cut out a piece of tulle or fabric to make a ballerina costume. Glue it on the figure. Add glitter for her crown and toe shoes. Glue the ballerina to a pinch clothespin.

Step 3: Cut a piece of the magnet strip and glue it to the back of the clothespin. Use your clothespin magnet to hold your artwork on the refrigerator.
