I think it was this past holiday season that I saw a lovely behind the counter display at the Santa Monica Anthropologie with clothespins glued into circles and painted bright colors. I never took a picture of that, but saw this in the jewelry display recently and finally remembered to snap a photo. I've done several searches on wooden clothespins but can't find anything that quite looks like these. Anyone out there no where I can find these particular ones? Thanks! Eurie
Eurie, the display and design team at Anthropologie do flat out remarkable jobs putting together displays that sometime outshine the wares they're sold next to. So we're pretty sure these clothespin designs were simply made in-house and not a purchased product. They seem very simple to make despite their intricate design; remove the metal wire spring, glue two wooden pieces back to back, allow to dry, then glue 24 pieces together with a hot glue gun. These would also make for lovely Christmas ornaments when painted.
