Adorable and practical? Yes, please!

I like crafting. I do. But I hate making a mess, especially in my tiny apartment, because it becomes overwhelmed by stuff so easily. So if a craft project involves getting tons of stuff out and then needing to find a place to store or display some kind of useless, sort of ugly item, I’m not doing it. But these clothespin crafts — OMG. They’re all adorable and practical and don’t seem to require a lot of set-up to make, creating the perfect winter afternoon task for the kid and me. They’ll hardly cost a thing, either! Just grab some old clothespins or buy a new bag and craft away!
