Clothespin Magnets

Here's a very inexpensive, quick and easy craft.

I found packages of cute clothespins in the $1.00 bin at Michael's several months ago. I had several ideas on how to use them. Last night I picked up some magnetic tape (a .5 in x 30 in roll was also a buck) and decided to turn a pack of the clothespins into fridge magnets.

You'll need:
  1. A pack of clothespins
  2. Magnetic tape
  3. Scissors
  4. 5 minutes
You'll need to cut a total of 8 small pieces off the magnetic tape. You'll want to cut the magnet piece slightly smaller than the clothespin. I just eyeballed the size.
The hardest part is peeling the tape of the magnetic piece. Once the backing is removed, place the sticky side down on your clothespin and give a little squeeze so the magnet piece will adhere.
Voila! Cute fridge magnets!
