Mini Wooden Clothespin Easel

This is the perfect easel to hold your Post-it notes or Polaroid photos. This cute little wooden easel is made from clothespins. You can also fit small artwork or 4 x 6 photos on it too. Options include painting or decorating, but I like the natural wood look.

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 1 easel



  1. Carefully remove the spring from 3 clothespins.
  2. Using sharp cutters or a pair of pliers cut 1.5" from the wooden dowel or chopsticks (I used rounded chopsticks). This piece should fit perfectly when clipped on the clothespin.
  3. Hot glue the half clothespin to full clothespin. Repeat this process two more times, total 3.
  4. Clip the 3 clothespins together as shown below.
  5. Now stretch the parallel clothespins wide.

  7. Hot glue two wooden pieces together to create the ledge.
  8. Secure onto your easel with hot glue. (You will be left with half a clothespin and 3 springs after completion of this project).
  9. Twist down the center so the easel can stand. Ready to decorate with a photo or, notepad to put on the side of your desk, or any place you would like.
