We already showcased on Recyclart some craft ideas made from upcycled clothespins. Today we will show you more than 50 DIY clothespin crafts ideas!
Back in history, do you know when the clothespin was invented? The wooden clothespin was invented in 1700’s for hanging up clothes, but at this time it was made from one-piece wooden. The actual design was invented by David M. Smith (inventor) of Springfield, Vermont, in 1853 and was improved by Solon E. Moore in 1887. A great invention for so many years and even if many people use cloth dryers nowadays in our modern countries, the clothespin is still used everywhere! These amazing wooden pegs could also be upcycled or reused for many creative DIY ideas for your house, wedding, kids party or even home indoor decoration. Let’s see what we’ve found :)
