1. First apply strips of washi tape to your clothespins. You can use it on one or both sides. (The magnets will stay better if you leave washi tape off of the back side where you will be adhering the magnets.)

3. Next, apply your stickers or embellishments to the front of your washi tape decorated clothespins. For ours, Meagan and I used puffy, sparkle alphabet stickers to spell out words.
