So I pick up clothes pins at the store, and luckily I have lots of tuna on hand. I like the look of the bare pins but I want to add some color. I ponder this one for a bit. I have a few bottles of paint, but not enough for some variety. And then it comes to me.....nail polish. Oh yah, I have TONS of that....
And it begins. It took longer than expected, as most pins needed at least 2 coats of polish. But I learned to quickly swipe and move on to the other colors.
Here is the finished product:
I added a simple brown ribbon to the pink and green holder to spice it up a bit. The other is more rainbow colored. I didn't use votive holders but baby food jars. I have a gazillion of them and knew I could put them to good use one day.
Overall I would say I'm pretty happy with this project. I think I will put them outside and use them more likely at night. If you look up close you can see the silver tuna can in the cracks. I made an effort to space the pins as close as humanly possible and still you can see a little bit of can. Oh well, I am sure they will look neat in the dark.
