Clothespins are used a lot on a day to day basis, but sometimes you just get tired of the boring colors of a clothespin after a while. Want to jazz up those plain clothespins a bit?  Here's a way to make your clothes (especially your pants) dry in style on that clothesline! Just grab your favorite patterned duct tape and you're good to go!

Materials:
  • Patterned duct tape
  • Scissors
  • Clothespins

Step 1: Duct Tape the Top

Rip a piece of duct tape about the length of the clothespin. Stick it to the top of the clothespin, lining the one side up carefully to the edges and corners. Crease the tape along the other side and make a tiny cut on the end of the crease. Quickly rip off the rest of the duct tape along the cut mark and fold over the extra tape onto the sides.

Step 2: Flip the Clothespin Over
