Boho Clothespin Mirror DIY

Since I live closer to a row of 99c stores than the big box craft stores, I always shop there first to see if they might have something I need for a project.  It's the perfect place to stock up on basics like mirrors, candles, clothespins and funky yarns.  You never know when you'll need some funky yarn!  This mirror was put together with ONLY dollar store items and it's one of my favorite pieces right now.  I have to say, it even looked great before I painted it when the wood clothespins were raw!  Still, you know me.  I had to give it some color and gold accents.  Do what makes you happy, friends and always Make Your Mark!
