Paint the clothespin with acrylic paint. (Be careful not to paint it shut. If you will open and close the pin as it is drying you can prevent this.) Allow enough drying time before gluing the embellishments and applying the magnet strip to the back of the clothespin.
The pins can be used to secure Bible verses to refrigerators or cabinets - anything that is metal. Read the verse and talk to your students about the importance of keeping the Word of God in their lives.
