SUNFLOWER CLOTHESPIN WREATH DIRECTIONS:
Put your clothespins in a large bowl or bucket.
*For my wreath, it is a 14″ frame from Dollar Tree and it took 156 clothespins.
Cover the clothespins in water. Add 2 Tablespoons or more of Rit Dye to reach your desired color. Remember to shake the bottle up before pouring.
Let them soak for approximately 4 hours.
Let the clothespins dry completely. Mine took a little over 24 hours stacked like this.
On your wreath form, clip your clothespins on the last wire all the way around.
For your second layer, clip your clothespins on the first and second wires all the way around.
It’ll look like this after you get all the clothespins on.
Paint brown acrylic paint on the first layer a little over halfway. I also made the edges uneven to create that sunflower’s center look.
*Optional, if you aren’t up for the painting, you could use brown Rit Dye and dye the first circle of clothespins instead. So you’d have an outer layer of yellow, and a center layer of brown clothespins.
Add a burlap ribbon bow, and pull some sunflower heads off a bouquet, and hot glue them onto your wreath.
Tie a piece of twine at the top for hanging. Your clothespin sunflower wreath is done for you to enjoy.
