  1. Create a work space that is easy to clean up and that won’t be ruined by the adhesive spray.  Place two paper towels side by side.
  2. Separate the clothespins into two pieces.  Leave the silver hinge attached to one and set the other aside.
  3. Place the pin half with the hinge on the paper towel and spray a thin layer of adhesive on the top.  DIY Glitter Clothes Pins - Tutorial & Video |
  4. Move the pin immediately to the second, clean paper towel.  Sprinkle glitter over the top onto the adhesive.
  5. Pat the glitter into the pin so it is secure to the adhesive.  Tap off any excess.
  6. Set aside to dry for 10 minutes then reattach the other half of the pin.
  7. Use the clothespins to hang pictures, as place card holders or anything else you can dream of!
