Are you looking for an easy tutorial on how to make a diy clothespin wreath? With just a few items you can make a very affordable wreath that you can customize for any season.
I absolutely love daisies and wanted to make something new for my front door this summer. With just a few inexpensive items – clothespins, a wreath form, and a mirror – I found a unique way to make an easy daisy clothespin wreath!
Clothespin Wreath: Supplies
- A wreath form (mine is 14″) – I used a wire wreath frame from the dollar store. You can find similar wreath forms at the hobby lobby or your local craft store.
- A mirror – Dollar Tree
- White clothespins – Walmart. You could also use yellow clothespins if you prefer.
- Hot glue gun
- Fishing line – you could also use a piece of twine

Clothespin Wreath Instructions
Start by clipping clothes pins on the outermost wire. Clip so that the second hole on the clothespin is the one around the wire wreath form. This is the best way to make sure the clothespins stay in place.
Continue clipping the clothes pins to this section all the way around. Each wreath form and clothespins are different so the number you’ll need may vary. My wire frame took 15 clothespins per section.
Once you have gotten all the way around the outer circle it’s time to begin the inner circle. For this, you’ll take your clothespins and clip them on the top 2 rails as you see here. The 2nd rail will fit the 2nd hole on the clothespin.
Continue placing the clothespins on the wreath until you have gotten all the way around. The top took roughly 12 clothespins per section.
Here is what the wreath looked like when all the clothespins were placed on. I actually ran out of clothespins while doing this so I had some gaps but I didn’t mind.
Using fish line (or another string of your choice) tie on the mirror to the center of the wreath form. I tied the top and the bottom of the mirror to the form for stability. I did remove a clothespin so that I could get it tied, and then replace the clothespin.
I hung it on my front door and I love how it turned out!
