gift ideas for home decor

(upbeat music) - [tresha] hey guys, welcome back. i had to share thisclothespin hack with you guys. this is the perfect decor item you can have on your entryway table, on your coffee table, end table, if you have a fireplace mantle. that will look great as well. and it will be a great gift to give.

so, are you curious to see how i did it? well, let's just dive right in. you'll need 23 clothespins to make one, but i decided to make two so i grabbed two packs of these and you can find them at the dollar tree. i started by taking each clothespin and twisting them to remove the spring. next i apply a rapid fuse wood adhesive

to one side of the clothes pin and glued it to the otherside, just like that. next i glued all of them together, creating a circle. i wanted to spray paintthe clothespin metallic, gold color, but i had thistheory that the color will pop more if i painted itblack first, so i did. i used the craftsmanacrylic paint for this. make sure to paint the front and the back.

now let's see if this color pops. oh yeah. yes indeed. since i had these washers lying around, i decided to glue five of them together to form a cross. i sprayed these gold too. once they were dry, iglued them to the center. and to top it off, i glued crystal gems

in the center of each one. now for the base. i used the top of a box that i purchased from the dollar tree. i also grabbed a pack of wooddowels from there as well. i used two for each stand. oh, and i purchased a pack of rocks too. this will give the standthe weight that it needs. we definitely don't wantit to fall over, do we?

to determine where iwant to place the dowels, i found the center of the top and then the center of each segment. once i did that, i tracedthe bottom of the dowel with a pencil. i used the tip of my draftingcompass to create the hole, but you can use anythingthat you have at home. afterwards i went back in with my dowels. just to make sure it fit.

now i'm going to paint thetop and the dowels black. oh, that was quick. now that it's dry, i'mgoing to flip it over and start hot gluingrocks to the back of it. it should look something like this. next i'm going to insertthe dowels in the holes then i'm going to place hot glue around the tip of the dowels. to keep things level for myself

while i put the two pieces together, i placed my clothespinson top of this block that i had, but you can use anything that you already have. and finally, hot gluethe two pieces together. wow, just gorgeous. big shout out to the notification gang. i wanna give a big shout out to the girly woodworker formaking the first comment
