Every time I broke a clothespin I got frustrated, till i discovered, I can turn them to ……. jewelry!!! Us everyone knows i love re-purposing almost everything. So let´s see step by step how can we can reuse the clothespin wire springs!


  1. 2 clothespin wire springs
  2. double chain or cord
  3. scissors (optional)
  4. 3 colorful hole beads



Step 1: Twist a clothespin apart to free the wire spring and with the help of a scissors or with your fingers stretch apart the wire ends.


Step 2: Slip on a large-hole bead, and let the wires snap back into place. 


Repeat the same for the second wire spring, but now use to beads instead of one.


Step 3: Pass the shorter of the two chains through the one beaded wire hole.


And the longer through the the wire with the two beads.


Ready to wear it!!!
