Clothespin Airplane Magnet Craft

Pin It

This clothespin airplane magnet craft will look awesome on your refrigerator and useful as a note holder, too. Or the kids will just fly it all over the house.

Materials:

  • clothespin
  • 2 craft sticks
  • 1 mini craft stick(or a regular one broke in half)
  • craft foam
  • paints and brushes
  • glue
  • strip magnets

Directions:

  1. Paint the craft sticks and the clothespin the colors of your choice and allow to dry. It looks better if the body and wings are contrasting colors.
  2. Glue the long craft sticks on the top and bottom of the clothespin for wings and the short one for the tail.
  3. Cut a little triangle from craft foam and glue on the tail.
  4. Add strip magnets on the bottom and place on the refrigerator.

Variation:

I saw one idea where you glue a third craft stick in the middle of the clothespin to make a tri-plane.
