This is the tutorial I shared over at Crystal's Craft Spot - I wanted to post it here, too for anyone who didn't happen to see it!
I'd love to show you guys a little craft we just threw together with some items from our big craft box. I'm sure the idea isn't new, but it's cute and fun! AND, this is about the only time I've ever gotten my boys to use pink paint!
Luv Bug Magnets
You will need:
Any other crafty items you like
Protect your work surface. Paint clothes pins with craft paint. Don't worry about it being perfect - mostly just cover the sides. The rest will be covered with ribbon.
Let dry completely. Glue ribbon to top of clothespin.
Now glue to the inside half of where you pinch.
I just pushed the ribbon down in there with the tip of my scissors.
Now add any embellishments you like. We used pipe cleaners, small pom poms and googly eyes.
Here are our little Luv Bugs hard at work!
