Step 1: Grab Your Materials

Here's what you will need to make it:

  • large popsicle sticks
  • white paint
  • paint brush
  • confetti / tissue paper / construction paper scraps
  • glue gun and glue sticks
  • magnets
  • Matte or Glossy Mod Podge
  • sponge brush

Step 2: Paint Sticks

To start, paint your popsicle sticks with white and let dry. I recommend using white, because it will give off a great contrast to the confetti and paper scraps that you will be gluing on.

Step 3: Add Pop of Color

Brush on a generous amount of Mod Podge to one half of each of the sticks, and adhere a few small pieces of colorful confetti, tissue paper, and construction paper scraps. You can even let some of the white show in some places to give it a neat custom look. Then, once the glue has dried, cut off any excess.

Step 4: Assembly

Now, to assemble the clip magnet, first break apart a few popsicle sticks and hot glue them to the back of your painted and decoupaged sticks to put everything together.

From there, hot glue a clothespin to the top of the front of your sticks, and a magnet to the back.

Step 5: Hang Up Your Memories

Once the glue has dried, you can hang it up and just attach a photo or reminder inside your clothespin!
