Creating the Menu Clips Stain or paint the clothespins to the color you desire (I used Brown Oxide Apple Barrel Paint). Cut slips of card stock to fit the clothespin. Write the days of the week on each slip. I wrote mine closer to the end of the clothespin to accommodate the jewels. Place the card stock slip on top of the clothespin. Then, place a piece of clear tape over the card stock sealing it neatly on top of the clothespin. Hot glue the jeweled embellishment to the end of the clothespin.
