mini holiday clothes pins_coco and mingo

Happy Sunday, friends! I know, so weird to be posting on a Sunday! But I just want to take today out to say THANK YOU all for your support and friendship this year! You have all made my experience here at Coco/Mingo the best ever and I thank each and every one of you. ♥

I’ll be taking it easy here on the blog until after Christmas so I wanted to leave you with a quick and easy DIY for all you last minute holiday preppers! I love snail mail and I have been loving each and every holiday card sent my way this year! To show them all off, I’ve decided to create these super easy holiday hanging clothespins!

// Acrylic paint, colors to your liking
// Mini clothespins (or semi-mini if you’ve got big handwriting!) I used Loew Cornell
// Paintbrushes

Easy enough! If you’d rather take an even easier route, buy the clothespins already dipped! Check out all the colorful options that my favorite packaging supply company, Thatch & Thistle Supply Co. has got for this!

Happy holidays, friends! For those of you celebrating Christmas, have such a great one! Unfortunately, I won’t be spending it at home with my family, but you know what they say, home is where the heart is. Mine is both here and there! ♥

Thank you Corina, for that beautiful, handmade mint-colored Christmas tree card!!
All hand lettering by me.
Obsessed with my gold tinsel twine from Thatch & Thistle Co – been using it on all my holiday packaging this year!

      So gorgeous, Jessica! I might have to try something similar. (How did you attach the ends of the string to the wall?) Anyway, hope you have a wonderful Christmas. It’s been such a joy reading your blog this year.

          Thank you, Ronnie!! I feel the same way about you, I’m so glad to have met you and discovered your amazing and inspirational blog! In regards to attaching the string to the wall, I used simple push pins, but you can also use tape (although less attractive) or small nails. Happy holidays! xo

      This is a lovely idea. Super easy and very practical for more than just Christmas 🙂 I think I might do this to fill my days off when I’m not at work over this holiday 🙂

      Btw I love your blog it’s very classy and elegant.
