A cute quick project to add some NOLA flair to your everyday.
I was in Michael’s today and found some super cute fleur de lis clothespins in what I can only describe as their “chalkboard paint” section, and while I initially planned on passing them up it occurred to me how perfect they would be for a NOLA themed project, especially since I had everything I needed on hand to make them Saints colors. So I thought ‘what the heck they’re a dollar and I’m sure I can use them for something’. Lo and behold I have turned them into (basically) fridge magnets.
Once you’ve reached the desired saturation of paint, and it has dried, you can go ahead and cut off pieced of magnetic tape that will fit the back of your clothespins. I actually cut off three pieces and then cut all of those in half lengthwise so that they would fit perfectly, and because I had six pins. If your magnetic tape isn’t sticky enough, as mine wasn’t, then you might need to glue them down in place.
