I know, I know, I was supposed to put this up days ago so apologies for being tardy in posting this idea but, hey, it's a busy time of year.
Okay, so we've made use of our surplus clothespins, now what do we do with all those little springs? No, I'm not planning to toss mine. Instead here's a lovely idea for reusing these from Michele L. over at Michele Lina over at Mich L. in L.A.
Michele's upcycled clothespin springs couldn't be lovelier. There are loads of other jewellry ideas for these springs. but I think Michele's are probably the best I've seen.

As I don't have the tools (nor the talent!), my idea is simpler.
Yup - a simple necklace and I've had lots of compliments on it. Very few guessed what the necklace was made of. To make, all I did was slip the springs together in a circle. Easy-peasy and no tools required.
