Clothespin Days!

I have a ton of Clothespins just lying around. They are cheap and there are many, MANY uses for them. Well I thought what about magnetic daily clothespins! :) hmmm, I guess there could be a better name for them (maybe i'll think of a good one later!) You could basically use these anywhere for anything! 

So are you ready to make your own?
Here we go!
Grab 7 clothespins, a piece of cute paper, magnetic strips and some mod podge

I printed out the days of the week on a piece of paper, but you could just write it on there if you want.

Cut out the days into strips a little longer than the top of the clothespin

Mod podge the strips on the top of the clothespins, wrapping the little bit extra around the top and the bottom

Cut the magnetic strips into smaller pieces to stick on the back of the clothespins

Now stick them on your fridge!
*sorry the lighting in my TINY kitchen isn't all that great :(*

Now you can add little notes for appointments and such onto your fridge coordinating with the day!

Now go find some cute scrapbook paper and start crafting!!
