Odds & Ends Challenge: Clothespin Photo Holders with Tya

Hi Doodlebug fans! It's Tya here and I am closing out our awesome and super fun Odds and Ends Challenge that we have had going on the blog the last couple of weeks. It was so fun to use this amazing product  and I challenged myself to use it in a new and inventive way other than a card or scrapbook layout. What I came up with are these cute photo holders made from giant clothespins that I picked up at my local craft supply store.  I used the adorable Dragon Tails line to make these and used the Odds and Ends, pattern paper, clothespins, mini stickers, This and That Sticker Sheet and enamel dots.
These clothespins are something I have had pinned on my "Projects I Love" board on Pinterest for ages and I am glad I got a chance to finally make these. To make the clothespins I painted them with some acrylic paint and then added various pattern papers to the front of the clothespins.

 I then printed off a few photos and then had fun decorating each of the clothespins in different ways. Here are some close ups:

These clothespins would be great as party favors or party decor - or even fun for a little gift. I hope I have inspired you to make some of these cute photo holders of your own. The Odds and Ends come with so many different pieces that you will have plenty to create so many different projects! Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
