My Mum has always used clothes pegs (clothes pins) to keep things closed, packets of things in the pantry and in the fridge. Useful but not very pretty!
Then I was given some pegs painted pale pink and covered in little hand painted roses! Suddenly I liked pegs! Since I have seen them on Etsy covered in glitter for uses at Christmas time.
I made these to close and finish little gifts in tiny paper bags and cellophane bags. I did some last year and pinned them to the Christmas tree and used them to pin Christmas cards across a little line I set up and it looked lovely! With a magnet stuck on one side they could be used to hold notices on the fridge.
As I was doing them I thought of my friend who would adore these with little ballerinas. But the options are endless! Imagine on party favour bags or on a little line in a bedroom to pin drawings or photos.
