Hi guys! I am so impressed with all of the great projects you girls made without your hubby's!!! Great work:) I'm back with a tutorial on how I made these super cute clips for my Basket-O-Blankets. These were very easy!
I started with these three unfinished wooden clips that I purchased at Hobby Lobby (50% off).
I took them apart to prep them for painting...
I used a new favorite color of mine from Rust-Oleum called Slate Blue.
I put them back together when the paint was dry and sanded the edges and corners with my 3M sanding block.
I then hot glued these unfinished wooden fleur de lis
(that I painted with Rust-Oleum Heirloom White) to the top of each clip.
A good coat of Ralph Lauren Smoke Glaze (paint on and wipe off) followed.
Now for the ribbon...
Open the end and drop a dab of hot glue in the center...
and attach a ribbon of choice at one end and that's it!!!
Just roll up a blanket, wrap the ribbon and secure the other end with the clip!
We have been using these for a few weeks now and I still love them! My boys love these blankets so I wasn't sure if I would get sick of wrapping them everyday but I don't. It's super easy and a decorative way to store them:) Totally worth it!!!
I got to thinking one day that these clips would be so cute as magnets for notes on the fridge as well. So, I did that too!
I purchased this strip of adhesive magnet for $1 at Michaels.
It's very easy to use. You just cut the size strip(s) you need...
and stick them on the back. I added one to the center because these clips are heavy.
LOVE THIS!!! I think I will go back and buy more. What a fun way to dress up the fridge:)
