You Will Need:

  • About 100 clothespins
  • A wire wreath (available at the dollar store)
  • Red, White and Blue paints
  • Paint Brushes
  • Adhesive Foam Stars
  • Command Hook and Strip

To Begin:

  1. Begin by clipping the clothespins to the wire wreath. We alternated clipping ours to the first then second wire.
  2. Fill the entire wreath with clothespins.
  3. Using a pencil, mark on your wreath which clothespins will be what color. R=Red W=White B=Blue
  4. Starting at the top of our wreath and working clockwise, we created a pattern of 4 reds and 4 whites.
  5. We continued this pattern about ¾ of the way. The last quarter of leftover clothespins should be marked blue.
  6. Once marked, remove your clothespins. With a few helping hands, paint each clothespin its respected color. Get creative! Add glitter or even write a soldier’s name on one of the pins to add a personal touch
  7. .Once the clothespins are painted and have been allowed time to dry, we can start clipping them back on!
  8. In the same pattern we started with, clip the clothespins to the wreath starting at the top and working clockwise.
  9. Again, the pattern should be 4 red, 4 white repeating. Once you are ¾ of the way done, the rest should be blue.
  10. Using the foam adhesive stars, remove the peel from the back and adhere to the blue side of your wreath.
  11. Using a command hook hang your Memorial Day Clothespin Wreath wherever you’d like!
