I love details. In this last post about Kaleigh’s bridal shower I’m sharing the rest of the details that made the day so special including a tutorial for these adorable DIY pink ombre’ clothespins.
Tied among the wisteria surrounding the gazebo was a little clothesline full of baby pictures of the Bride-to-Be. Each pic was hung from simple wood clothespins with an easy ombre paint treatment.
The end of the clothesline was embellished with handmade fabric strip tassels.
DIY Ombre’ Clothespins Tutorial
Karianne painted these using pink and white craft paint.
Staring with white at the bottom of the clothespin…
she layered in the pink…
gradually getting darker and darker…
Ending with the darkest pink at the top of the clothespin.
We thought about adding spray glitter but somehow didn’t get around to it. But it sure would be a nice finishing touch.

All I could think…Where did the years go?
Courtney found the oversize pink balloons on Etsy at Ceferina Sweet. Supposedly these balloons can be blown up to 36″ in diameter! But Courtney got a bit nervous about popping such a large balloon as she was airing it up and decided better safe than sorry.
