This has got to be one of the most brilliant uses of clothes pins I've ever seen.  I can't wait to make a bracelet for myself!

I don't know where I saw this but I have a suggestion for the leftover bits.  Hot pads!  Of course I think hot diches would melt plastic and this would be best done with wooden ones but I thought the design looked cool enough to just hang up.  I'm not sure if this will make sense without accompanying pics but you glue like sides together...flat to flat then curved to curved...until you get a circular piece.  it would be cool with patterned colours.

well-behaved women rarely make history.

Here's a link to a lamshade made out of plastic clothespins.  I love how translucent they are!  http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/main/archives/000841.html

first actual post so bear with me folks lol.thanx so much for the idea. i found a bunch of wodden clothes pins in my basement and made one yesterday. i added a little medalion type of thing that i made out of cooler caps which i was originally going to put on a hemp necklace. they were twist-offs so they were really easy to cut. i cut off the face and used a little hot glue to stick a couple together then punched a hole through with a nail. i gave a little "edging" so to speak lol out of hemp, too. My cam isn't working right now so i just scanned it so i don't sound like a nut job trying to describe it lol.

anyway... for what to do with the remainging peices. i don't think that it would possible to do this with the plastic pegs but with the wooden ones, what i think i'm going to do is make some bracelets out of them seeing as i have enough to make about 4 of these.

- paint pegs black (or w/e color you want. i'm just going to go with black because i'm going with a b&w theme)
- choose image that is long enough to fit over X# of pegs that it will take to fit wrist. (i've podged alot of stuff lately with pics that i've cut out of old encycolpedias from the 70's so i think i'm going to take it from there but you could do it with any pic you want.)
- line pegs up on table side by side in a straigt line
- cover faces of pegs with glue
- place photo over pegs
- let dry
- flip over the pegs and picture and use a utility knife to spearate them back into indivdual pegs
- glue something like a small piece of card over the indent where the spring used to fit so to make a hole.
- thread elastic cord through pegs in order so that when wearing it you can see the pic...yet it's broken up onto each peg if you get what i mean Tongue
- tie off however you wish

so yea...that's my input  Undecided

Why don't you do some thing productive and kill yourself because standing here next to you is beginning to make me look like an idiot. And trust me, I'm capable of looking like an idiot without your assistance.
