A couple of weeks ago I decided to spruce up some boring clothes’ pegs by dip-dying them. I had some normal craft paint lying around, which did the job perfectly. I think they’d make a great addition to any gift wrapping, or even to just use around the kitchen for sealing bags. You could even stick a magnet on the bag to keep notes on the fridge. They would also work well for wedding decor, to attach place cards to glasses or twine. The possibilities are endless!
I used some Heritage craft paint, but you can use whatever you like, as long as it’s not too runny, otherwise it may drip. Mine was actually too thick, so I had to use a toothpick to smooth off the edges. I found it worked quite well to attach two pegs together, since you can hold onto the second peg while dipping, and then that acts as the base while they’re drying.
What will you need:
- wooden pegs (the good ol’ fashioned kind)
- craft paint
- a protected surface (covered in cling-wrap or something similar)
Everything is pretty self-explanatory, just clip the pegs together in pairs, and get dipping! You can use a toothpick to make a straight edge, or to wipe off any excess paint.
