Picture/Recipe Holder Tutorial....

Supplies Needed: Old Potato Masher, (2) wood #4 X 5/8" screws, screwdriver, dremel with drill attachment, (1) clothespin, small piece of scrapbook paper, decoupage glue, embellishments for front of clothespin and E6000 glue
To start project take the clothespin apart and put metal piece aside. Glue paper to wood pieces and allow to dry. After this dries, sand down all the sides really well. With an ink pad, run down the wooden unfinished sides (use any color you like). Varnish the clothespin next. Drill two holes in one side of your clothespin for the screw to go all the way through. Mark your holes on your the top handle of your potato masher and drill starter holes for your screws. Next take your screws and screw one side of the clothespin with the metal side attached to the potato masher. Now attach the other side of the clothespin to the other side of the clothespin. All you need to do now is embellish your clothespin using E6000 glue!
Have Fun!
