Kissing Clothes Pin Couples

Kissing Clothes Pin Couples

What do I love more than mason jars? Clothes pins. Maybe it's because there are so many things you can create with a simple clothes pin. I use clothes pins for gift toppers, baby shower decor, candy buffets, organizing, and now little people that stand on my dresser. These little kissing couples can be used as cupcake toppers, paper clips, or they can simply dance around your desk when you're feeling a little sad. Every craft has it's purpose : ) 

We decided to do a wedding theme for our clothes pin people. From left to right: The single girl you invited to your wedding that totally dressed inappropriately and made out with the groom's college roommate, the fancy couple in the back that never get out and want to take full advantage of not being with their children, and the blissfully happy newlyweds.

This particular couple was made with paint (for the bodies) and one piece of tulle. We just cut the tulle, gathered it together, and hot glued it to the clothes pin. Super easy. You could use ribbon, paper, cloth, whatever you have. 

The fancy couple was made using paint and ribbon. The brown shiny dress is actually one piece of glitter ribbon that we cut into different sized hearts and hot glued to the clothes pin. Can you see the upside down hearts? We just glued the ends of the hearts to the wood so it created a ruffled look.

The newlyweds were made using paint (for the bodies) and tissue paper. I had this white fancy tissue paper so that is what we used for the dress and veil. You could honestly use any tissue for this, even a tissue (as in Kleenex) would work. Just get creative. You could also add rhinestones and little props to the people as well. 

I pronounce you husband and wife. 

You may now kiss the bride. XO

** A big thanks to Sheena. She's new to Lilyshop and I gave her  a pile of clothes pins, some paint, tulle, and ribbon and said "Sheena, I want one fancy girl, one girl in a tutu, and one bride. You have an hour."
Yeah, I'm a little controlling. But she did an awesome job!

Made 30 of these and used them at the Bridal shower to play a game . Everyone started with a pin clipped to their dress and chose a word, in this case "Jeff" the groom's name As the "off limits" word. If you were caught saying Jeff you lost your pen. Prizes were given at the end of the party was given out for the most pens accumulated. I won ! Pens were then redistributed as little keepsakes. The Bride & Groom's names & wedding date were inscribed on the groom side of the pin.

What did you use for the eyes ...I made a gorgeous Bride and Grooms...the entire wedding party and the mob and fob and mog and fog. they are fab.Everthing I try bleeds? I painted the bride white and then used an opaque silver swirled tiny drawstring favor bag and tied it at the botton for the brides gown. Mermaid stlye. The mother I used the top of the bag lined it with teal tissue paper and the over lay was silver swirl. The tissue held it out..It was a ball gown style. MOG I used plain colbalt blue ribbon and cut the bottom pieces in three slashes and curles it up..she got a silver belt. Now i need help with the face...what to use thanks for this idea

How beautiful! I used paint for the faces because pen bleeds - same with the Sharpie. I recommend the tiniest paint brush and just regular paint from the craft store! Good luck. Send me a pic of yours when you finish!
