Clothes Pin Planter for the Laundry Room

Well as most of you know I have been working on my laundry room. Such a small area in my house to work on and yet has seemed to take so much time!

Made this cutie recently. 

 I saw the original idea at Greg and Ashley's blog over at

All I needed for my little project was some clothes pins, and empty tin can and the glue gun! I bought some clothes pins from the Dollar Tree and saved a can that chicken breast came in.

I began to glue clothes pins all the way around the tin can.

Now Ashley stained her clothes pins before gluing them on and painted her tin can. I decided to leave the clothes pins their natural color and did not paint the can. However, it would be really cute to paint coordinating colors that you might be using.

Here is what it looked like from the top.

Ashley had drilled holes in the bottom of her can and planted an herb in the can. I decided since I do not have a whole lot of light coming into my laundry room that silk greenery might be best for now. Cute, simple and cheap! Perfect for my little cabinet for my laundry room don't ya think?

This would be really cute with a candle in it as well. 

 Remember this little cabinet that I bought at a yard sale?

And remember when I told you that I wanted to hide my ugly hot water heater and I showed you this? 

Both of these projects are completed! YES! 

Stay Tuned! Will show you the finished project this week.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    1. Thanks Connie! I love the way the hot water heater project came together!

  2. Love what you did with clothes pins. That's awesome. I don't have a laundry room! :-( Just a laundry closet. Can't wait to see everything in its place once you are finished.

  3. I'm certainly looking forward to this reveal! I've enjoyed seeing each thing individually, but it is going to be so much fun to see it all together!

  4. Dianna, it has been crazy trying to make it all come together! If I had the time I had no money and If I had the money I had no time! Story of my life! LOL!

  5. Thanks for the lovely idea:)

  6. Isn't it amazing the beautiful creations that come out of clothes pins? And that cabinet. Wow!
    Love your creativity!

  7. Hi Cindy! Oh, guess what? I made a little flower container like this when I was a little girl in Vacation Bible School! We glued the clothespins around a little coffee can and popped an African Violet in it! Oh, I love it.
    Be a sweetie,

  8. Cindy this little project it just too cute. Love it and may have to try this as well.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hugs, CM
