Hi guys!  I am so impressed with all of the great projects you girls made without your hubby’s!!!  Great work:)  I’m back with a tutorial on how I made these super cute clips for my Basket-O-Blankets.  These were very easy!
I started with these three unfinished wooden clips that I purchased at Hobby Lobby (50% off).
I took them apart to prep them for painting…
I used a new favorite color of mine from Rust-Oleum called Slate Blue.
I put them back together when the paint was dry and sanded the edges and corners with my 3M sanding block.
I then hot glued these unfinished wooden fleur de lis

 (that I painted with Rust-Oleum Heirloom White) to the top of each clip.
A good coat of Ralph Lauren Smoke Glaze (paint on and wipe off) followed.
Now for the ribbon…
Open the end and drop a dab of hot glue in the center…
and attach a ribbon of choice at one end and that’s it!!!
Just roll up a blanket, wrap the ribbon and secure the other end with the clip!
We have been using these for a few weeks now and I still love them!  My boys love these blankets so I wasn’t sure if I would get sick of wrapping them everyday but I don’t.  It’s super easy and a decorative way to store them:)  Totally worth it!!!
I got to thinking one day that these clips would be so cute as magnets for notes on the fridge as well.  So, I did that too!
I purchased this strip of adhesive magnet for $1 at Michaels.
It’s very easy to use.  You just cut the size strip(s) you need…
and stick them on the back.  I added one to the center because these clips are heavy.
Tada!
LOVE THIS!!!  I think I will go back and buy more.  What a fun way to dress up the fridge:)

  7. we have had the big clips as magnets for a while now and my oldest has claimed one to show off his accomplishments. Every time he has a new one he races to tell his father when he gets home from work. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Ashley, these clips are just gorgeous! Your blanket basket is one of my favourite projects and these just add so much loveliness to it all! Thanks for showing us how to make them, I am now on the hunt for some large pegs! Have a lovely day ~ Tina x
