Ballerina Clothespin Ornament Instructions

Start by firing up your glue gun.

Next, take the clothespin apart - so easy - let the kids do this!

Now work on your tutu by threading a string through a few layers of tulle cut to 6" long by 1" wide. Leave yourself 4" of thread on each end to easily tie around your clothespin ballerina.

When the glue gun is hot, place your clothespin back to back and glue.

Next thread a pipe cleaner through the little hole you've created with the pin.

Fold the 'arms' around to make a circle above your clothes pin and glue your bead to secure the arms to one another.

Next, draw your face and ballet slippers onto your ballerina.

Et voila! You're done. Add these sweet ballerinas to your tree, string as a garland or add to gifts for a lovely gift topper.
