The first step is to separate the two halves of the clothespin.

To start you have to assemble the chlotespins to make the basic parts:

-The ground: It´s a square made of 6 clothespins stuck like in the foto.
-The roof: It´s made of two equal parts like in the photo (3 pins for each one)
-The tree: Made with 4 pins like in the photo.
