crafting with grandma - Fun, Excellent & Affordable Gifts - Clothespin Ornaments!

These handpainted clothing pins look like a fun activity for children and parents. Also you can look at http://www.playhousegifts.com/home for similar handcrafted christmas decorations created in Germany by Steinbach and Ino Schaller. You will find wood nutcrackers and Paper Mache Candy Containers.
Please let me say first of all, I shared this idea a month ago, but I really love it and it is so affordable and fun, so I thought I'd share it again! This is an ornament idea which you can get your grandchildren to help you with . . . even younger ones can paint - or color with permanent ink markers - and you'll end up with something cute which will look even cuter on the tree!

All you need are some spring clothespins, paint - or permanent ink markers and creativity and voila! You'll have great ornaments which will make excellent gifts!

I really love the snowmen and think you could make a nativity set with it as well! Which design do you like the best? Enjoy!
