Clothespin Chore Chart

So I really wanted to make a chore chart and after I looked all over, I found this clip board one that uses ... clothespins! You all know how I feel about clothespins :)

Okay so all you need is:
a clipboard
scrapbook paper, embellishments,etc
glue or mod podge
chore list

This clipboard came from DI and needed a MAJOR overhaul because it had scrapbook paper, marker, highlighter, etc. on it. But I bought it because other than that it was brand new and only $1. So after some paint, scrapbook paper, and ribbon it looks MUCH better :)

So I made the pins (they say "to do" on one side and then "finished" on the other) and the list and threw it all together! I don't call it a "chore chart" because I don't like to think of some of the things on there as "chores" (like praying and choosing the right, etc) I also laminated the list for extra durability.

I think it turned out stinkin' cute! I can also make a custom order for you of either the whole thing or just the pins in my etsy shop! Just contact me :)
