Magnetic Herb Drying Clips by Optimistic MommySupplies Needed:

  • Clothespins
  • Ribbon
  • Flower Embellishments
  • Hot Glue, Glue Gun

  1. Begin by cutting a length of ribbon to fit the clothespin. Apply and attach with glue.
  2. Add some flare to the end of the clothespin. We used small flowers found in the dollar section of our local craft store.Magnetic Herb Drying Clips by Optimistic Mommy
  3. On the back of the clothespin, add a piece of magnetic strip. Just cut a piece to fit, add a dab of glue, and press until secure.
  4. Take your freshly picked herbs and clamp them inside of the clothespin. Attach the clothespin to your fridge allowing the herbs to hang down.

Your herbs will naturally dry out and preserve over time. When you need them, it is as simple as taking them from the clothespin and crushing them up. Easy peasy!
