Introduction: Clothespin Sunflower Wreath
I was thinking about making a clothespin sunflower wreath for some time and finally get an idea of how it should look.
Metal Wire Wreath Frame 16"
Hot Glue Gun - optional
Rit Dye - I used Black Azabache and Golden Yellow Amarillo Dorado
Word Correction Fluid
Faux Flowers - Sunflowers and Daisies
Plastic Bowls - I used from ice-cream
Step 1: Prepare Clothespins
First, prepare the plastic containers and the clothespins. You have to count approximately how many clothespins you will need of each color depending on the size of the wire frame you will use.
Step 2: Make the Mixture
Pour 1 liter of water in each container and add 150-180 ml of dye.
Step 3: Dye Clothespins
Put half of the clothespins in the yellow dye and the other half in the black dye. Let them soak for 24 hrs.
Step 4: Dry Off Clothespins
Let the clothespins dry off on a cardboard for several hours.
Step 5: Make Polka Dots
Using liquid word corrector start making polka dots on each clothespin follow the pattern showed on the photos.
Step 6: Placing Clothespins on the Wire Frame
Start placing clothespins on the wire frame. Yellow ones on the inner circle and black ones on the outer circle. Place one yellow, one black, one yellow , etc. until all clothespins are placed and you have a perfect wreath.
