  • 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.

  • White clothespins – Walmart. You could also use yellow clothespins if you prefer.
  • Hot glue gun

Start by clipping on clothes pins on the outside ring. Clip so that the second hole on the clothespin is the one holding onto the wreath form.

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 on the clothes pins to this section all the way around. Each wreath form and clothespins are different so the amount you'll need may vary. My wreath form took 15 clothespins per section.

Once you have gotten all the way around with the bottom row it's time to start on the top row. For this you'll take your clothespins and clip them on the top 2 rails as you see here. The 2nd rail in will roughly fit the 2nd hold on the clothespin.

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.

    1. Thank you Victoria and I’m a fan of yours and love the things you create and make πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by.

  1. This is so pretty! On a dark colored door it really shines! For years I had a front door that had 3 windows offset on the upper part of the door so any wreath blocked the windows. Now I have a new door with the mini glass at the top. It’s time for me to start thinking about seasonal wreaths. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks so much Linda and with your new door, it sounds like you have so many possibilities coming your way. Let the creative juices flow πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you Jeannie, you are so sweet πŸ™‚ I love that daisies are one of your favorite flowers too.

  3. Wow! That’s a cute idea. I have a ton of those wooden clothespins that I have had for years. I now can make one of these wreaths and enjoy it. Happy Summer, Kippi

    1. Thank you Kippi, and I love that you are interested in making one too πŸ™‚
