Easy Peasy Decorated Peg Idea

Decorated Pegs 1
I cannot claim this idea as my own because I saw something very similar in a “posh” shop over the weekend and just had to make my own version.

All I have used is five ordinary pegs, stuck on a length self adhesive ribbon and co-coordinating gems.  I have also added a small magnet on the back of the peg. …… done and dusted!
What a brilliant Christmas idea for teachers, etc. and they only take minutes to make!

To answer your question about what they are meant to do ......

Not a lot ..... it's just a bit of fiddle fart.

But if you look in any craft/gifty shop, pegs are very in vogue at the moment, especially the smaller ones. They usually feature flowers, ladybirds, small creatures etc stuck on the ends.East of India do lovely pegs with hearts on.

Because they have a magnet on the back I thought they could be used as a fridge magnet to hold an appointment card etc.

Without a magnet they could be used to clip bills together or packs of stickers, peel offs.

Or you could make a little shopping list clipboard, with the peg holding the list or pen in place.......

And then there's Christmas ..... to hang your cards up with ..... in fact that gives me another idea ....... I might make a Christmas set .......
