  • Level:beginner

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use painter’'s tape to create shapes on the sides of each wood block. Paint the uncovered areas, let dry, and remove the tape.
  • 2
    Stand the clothespin in the center of the wood block, mark the placement of the clothespin, and then carefully hold the wood block in place to drill a hole. Tip: It works best to drill two holes next to each other, alternating on each hole until they are 3/8"” deep or deep enough to hold clothespin.
