Playing around with some clothespins that I had aged with “ironed vinegar,” I made a star. You can read about aging wood at this old wood.
Have you ever doodled on a piece of paper and then look at the scribbles and see a really cool drawing of a bug or something?
Well if you have and found yourself cutting out the cute little bug, that’s how I feel about my little clothespin star. I didn’t want to break it apart.
With a bit of wood glue, my little clothespin star won’t break apart! It’s hanging on top of the tree I formed on springs from an old bench that was done for the 12 Days of Christmas Home Tour.
To make one start by making 5 “V” shapes. Then moving them around to form a star.
Here are the basic lines use to make a 5 point star.
I have to find a place for it after Christmas. I sure it will end up on a bookcase or the mantel.
