I bought these vintage clothespins at the thrift store a few months ago, with the idea of decoupaging them. Finally, this week I got around to it.
I printed out a lot of phrase snippets from open-source French graphics (many from The Graphics Fairy!)…making sure their backgrounds were not all white but a range of tans, creams, etc.and that the typography was different for all of them. Then I modpodged them onto the pins.
I think these would look great piled on a small vintage silver tray or in a wire basket. I’ve lined up sets on vintage cotton piping that looks like an old clothesline and added a vintage style Made in France tag to each set. Voila!
