Vintage Clothespin People

A while back I saw an image from THIS SHOP pinned on pinterest.  She had painted clothespins to look like people.  I thought it was really cute and wanted to try to make one of our family.  

I had some old clothespin from the thrift store so I got out some paint and went for it.

Rex had to have a superhero look, so I just painted the white circle that Ironman has on his shirt.  I have an outfit I wore probably ever other day last summer.  My sister used to make fun of my for it, so I painted that outfit for myself.  Baden got a "B" and Mr. Roar was painted in work clothes.

I had an extra chunk of wood in the garage that I spray painted aqua.  Then I cut vinyl letters that "home."  I hot-glued the clothespins to the board.

I have a spot planned out for it, but that's a post for another day.

Thanks for stopping by.
