How to Make Clothespin Witches

| More

Halloween is later this month.  It is coming up quickly….. so now is the time to decorate your house for Halloween.  Today I’m going to show you how to make Clothespin Witches.  The craft calls for a wooden clothespin.  My suggestion to you is to use the old-fashioned clothespins…. not the “pinch-to-open” ones.  Make a few of these Clothespin Witches to decorate your whole house.   Grab the materials needed and let’s get started.
