Want to make your own fabric clothespins and magnets?  It's easy!

You'll need scrap fabric, Mod Podge (I used matte), scissors, clothespins, magnets.

Put Mod Podge on the clothespin, and lay the fabric on top.  I cut the fabric to be a little larger than the clothespin.  That makes it easier to work with and glue down.  Do the same to the other side of the clothespin.

Lay the magnet on the fabric to measure amount needed.  I also cut the fabric a little larger than the magnet.

Put Mod Podge on the magnet, and lay the fabric on top.  Then put Mod Podge on top of the fabric.  Do the same to the top of the fabric on the clothespins.  This stiffens the fabric and secures it will stay on.

Trim away the excess fabric.

There ya go!  Now you have super cute magnets that you'd be proud to put on your fridge!  And those clothespins could be great for all kinds of things!  You could even go a step farther and add a magnet to the back of the clothespins!
Let me know if you try it!

Come back tomorrow for Day 4 of giveaways!
