I ordered some old fashioned clothespins; ones with round tops and others with flat top from Amazon just to make these sweet clothespin ornaments all made with felt and markers, too cute. I found this video on Martha’s site and I think you all will want to make a couple also. Handcrafted ornaments not only add a personal touch to a Christmas tree, but also make wonderful gifts — and even the most utilitarian materials can be used to create them. Martha Stewart Living segment producer Lenore Welby has been making these playful doll ornaments out of old-fashioned wooden clothespins for years. To dress the dolls, use our templates to cut clothing from fabrics that don’t require hemming, such as lace and felt; bits of ribbon and small beads can be used to accessorize. Go here after the video for the templates and patters.
