Sun Clothespin Wreath

Facebooktwitterpinterestmail

My husband and I went for a walk yesterday, and the sun was shining so nicely on us, and it felt so good. I literally closed my eyes while walking and felt like I was on a beach for second ☀️ ☀️ ☀️. Then reality took over 😂, and I glanced over at my new “Sun Clothespin Wreath” on our front door.

Once we got back home after our sunshine walk, I felt so good from all of that vitamin D that I gobbled up 3 clementines we had just received from Instacart. One thing led to another, and I was playing with lemons on our kitchen island 😆.

All kidding aside, between the sunshine, quiet time with my favorite guy, the exercise, and the lemons/clementines, I was feeling much happier than I was before.

As a decorator, I was very surprised to see how much I loved the splashes of bright yellow and orange in our kitchen. Honestly, I shy away from yellow, and focus on cooler colors. I had so much fun, I ended up ordering two yellow runner rugs that I will be sure to share on my redheadcandecorate.com Facebook page. On that note, do you have yellow in your home?

How to Assemble Sun Clothespin Wreath

-Spray paint the wreath form with orange spray paint. I used 2 coats.

-Spray paint the front only of approximately 33 orange clothespins. I used 2 coats (feel free to paint a few extra in case you need them).

-Spray paint the front only of approximately 50 marigold clothespins. I used 2 coats (feel free to paint a few extra in case you need them).

-Spray paint the front only of approximately 33 neon yellow clothespins. I used 2 coats (fee free the paint a few extra in case you need them).

-After everything is completely dry (I waited over night), clip on your clothespins. Please follow the image provided below for help, but also my these tips will help, too.

-Start in one section of the wreath (you’ll see there are 6 sections total divided by straight lines across he wreath form). Clip on approximately 5 orange clothespins on the 2 bottom level circles leaving a little space in between each one so the middle layer will have room.

-Clip on approximately 5 marigold clothespins in between the orange ones, but on the higher middle 2 center level circles going all the way down with the clip so the clothespins reach further (see photo below).

-After you complete all 6 sections with the orange and marigold clothespins, clip on the neon yellow clothespins at the end of the marigold clothespins. I clipped mine on the exterior piece. You may want to glue these a little, but I didn’t because I have plans for this baby in the fall.

-I hung the wreath with an invisible clear hook (see above), and then I added black sunglasses with clear thread ( I literally broke off the sunglass arms and tied the string to the middle of the glasses and then to the wreath form to hang the frames there.

    Your wreath is so you! I love the John Denver song “Sunshine on my shoulder makes me happy”. Your song would be “Sunshine on my front door makes happy”.

    Cheers, Bette

    Your wreath really caught my eye and the more I looked at it the more I loved it!!! If was to do the on my own, I would have thought to paint all of the clothes pins yellow. But I can see it wouldn’t like right. So I will follow your directions when I make my own!! Thanks for a wonderful idea!! I’m a red-head too, but it’s fading with age! Until I buy my next box of hair color!!!!!
