All you need are clothespins, a craft stick, paint, and a few star stickers for this great last minute July 4th Clothespin Flag Craft!
Simply paint 2 of your clothespins a blue color. Then paint 3 red and 3 white. Make the 2 blue at the top, or first on the side, then follow with alternating red and white. We also alternated direction, too, clipping the clothespin as far in as you can one way, then doing the next the other. Finished with some star stickers on the blue clothespins.
I am excellent at waiting until the last minute for our craft ideas. Like, the morning of usually. But if you can’t get to this one today, then be sure to save it for next year! It’ll be a winner then, too.
