American Flag Clothespin Platter - finished platerHere is a decorative platter I made from wooden clothespins I found for a dollar. I painted them and then clipped them onto a plastic lid I would have otherwise thrown out. Alternatively, you could clip these clothespins onto a ring to make a nice wreath.
