Paint the clothespins.Start by covering your workspace and painting the clothespins. Mine ended up needing 3 coats and each one dried about 5 minutes before I added the next one.
Cut out the paper shapes.Cut out simple shapes from colorful card stock paper to make the fruit pieces. Most fruits are either round or oval. The strawberry is a heart. Leaves can be made with scrap bits of green.
Assemble the fruit.Glue the leaves in place on each fruit. Use a Sharpie to draw on accents, like the pineapple spikes, strawberry seeds, and orange dimples.
Attach the magnet strips.Cut the magnet strips to fit the length of the clothespins. Use craft glue to attach them to the unpainted side. Hold each one until it begins to set, then let the glue dry completely.
Attach the paper fruit.Glue the pieces of fruit onto the front of the magnet at the top. Let dry completely.
