There is nothing that my little ones like to do more than “check the mail.”
They watch for the mailman- and usually fight over who gets to go out and grab the mail, and bring it into the house. I am not sure why this is such a fun event for them- considering most of what we get on a daily basis is boring- bills, bank statements and junky business flyers.
A lot of times the mail gets gathered by the children, and then haphazardly tossed somewhere in the house.
That is where these DIY mail sorter clothespins are going to help out!
Supplies needed to make your own DIY mail sorter clothespins:
- 12″ Jumbo Clothespin.
- 9″ Jumbo Clothespin.
- 6″ Jumbo Clothespin.
- Dena Designs 12×12 Little Azalea Paper. (three different designs of your choice)
- Mod Podge.
- Foam Brush.
- Craft Knife.
- Sand It Set.
- Letter Stickers. (I used black)
When the Mod Podge is dry, run your finger over the gutter where the metal clip is- it will bend the paper inward slightly.
Here’s hoping your “bills” clothespin stays empty!
