Bright & Bold Pegs. Jazz up your old wooden pegs using the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

Learn how to jazz up tired looking clothes pegs using Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper - Pick a Pattern has been used in this project
Every so often I decide to upcycle my scruffy old clothes pegs. After doing their job on the washing line for a while they start to look a bit grubby and in need of a makeover. This happens about every 3 years when the new pegs I have bought to replace the old pegs start to look a bit sad.

There is only one thing for it...

Bring out the Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

There are so many designs and colours you can use DSP for just about anything - cardmaking, scrapbooking, home decor projects, gifts, packaging, the list is truly endless.

The paper I've used to revamp my pegs this time around is the Pick a Pattern DSP. It's a gorgeous and bright set of papers, and as I explain in the video below it comprises of many fun patterns including dinosaurs, cameras, woodland animals and camping, flowers, groovy toadstools and much more.


I have gone for the three boldest colours in the pack - Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry and Basic Black.

Watch the video to see just how easy it is... 


What supplies will I need? 
The best thing about this project is it involves very few supplies, uses up those smalls scraps of paper that you don't know what to do with and yet completely transforms your old pegs. You will need:

1. Old wooden clothes pegs that need some love
2. Scraps of paper
3. Snail Adhesive 
4. OPTIONAL - something to lacquer your pegs with, being careful not to stick the peg together so it doesn't function of course.

In 2012 I made Pretty Pegs and in 2014 I made Geometric Pegs. This year we have Bright & Bold pegs.

I mentioned in the video that although it is the end of the school year this is a brilliant project that you could do with the children as gift to their teacher as a thank you (perhaps one for next year). You could also put a fridge magnet on the back of the peg as a note holder for the fridge or office. There are quite a few possibilities with such a simple project.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, feel free to leave comments (I love getting those!).
