Adorable & practical!
**Need 'clothes pins/pegs'...the flat ones that open, not the round ones**
My mother-in-law inspired me to make these chip clips (snack bag clips). She originally added a magnet to the back of hers to be used as a magnetic note holder, but I found myself clipping them to seal bags of cereal, chips, snacks, frozen veggies, prepackaged salad, etc.
(The last photo with the 2 clips (angel & snacks/beer) were the original ones from my mother-in-law...she also made ones for the holidays).
Take your wooden clothespin and paint the entire thing (i even painted the metal hardware).
This will actually take awhile to complete, because there are so many sides to it and you have to let each side dry.
Tip: every now and then when the paint is drying or after you will want to open the clip, to make sure the paint doesn't make it stick shut.
Take your buttons, foam or wood peices, or whatever you are going to use to put on them.
I bought a small packet of buttons from Michael's for about $1.99-$2.99 each, which was enough for about 5 clips...you will have to clip off some of the backings that stick out using a pair of dykes or another tool.
