13 Reasons Clothespins Are Killing It At DIY Weddings

Even if you aren’t going for total DIY style, there could be a place for the clothespin in your wedding plans. Decorated with glitter and spray paint or left as plain wood, clothespins are the problem-solving connectors answering age-old questions like: How do I display my escort cards? How do I get my menus to stand up? How do I make an inexpensive backdrop for my cake table? With clothespins available in various sizes and with the option to throw back to the traditional clothes peg, you’ve got an array of choices on how to incorporate this inexpensive DIY supply. Here are 12 of the best reasons clothespins can work for your wedding.

1. You can sprinkle them with glitter and clip your escort cards to framed chicken wire.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
