Clothespin Pilgrims

These cute clothespin pilgrims are a craft I have wanted to make for a long time now.  My mom has had a version of these for years and I have always thought they were super cute and since she wouldn’t let me take them I had to figure out how to recreate them.

I used the flat wooden clothespins (from, scraps of black and white fabric and pipe cleaners to make my little pilgrims.  Now, here is where I’m upfront and honest with you and tell you I didn’t do a step by step tutorial because these little guys were harder to figure out then I thought!

But, if you are interested in making your own Clothespin Pilgrims download our free template for their clothes and basic instructions.
