"Bobby Pins" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Wire router.
Secure speaker or phone wires to the baseboard or molding. Clip the ends off the bobby pins so that they slide easily into the cracks.
2. Necklace.
String pins with colored beads and knots of ribbon between them.
3. Ornament hanger.
Slip through the ornament loop, then clip to the tree branch.
4. Apple bobbing.
Let your guests bob for apples without getting wet. Insert bobby pins in the tops of a dozen apples; leave part of each pin ex posed and thread a string through it. Hang the apples from a broomstick suspended between two chairs.

5. Zipper pull. Replace a broken one with a bobby pin.
 

6. Cuff links. Insert a bobby pin through both cuff-link holes; secure by twisting it or, if you wish, bending the ends into the shape of your initials with long-nose pliers.
 

7. Bookmark. Use a bobby pin to mark your place in a book.
 

8. Peg. When propagating plants by layering, hold their stems down with bobby pins.
 

9. Paper clip. Hold several pieces of paper together with a bobby pin.
 

10. Nail holder. Spare your fingersó use a bobby pin to grip a nail when hammering in tight spaces.
 

11. Invisible tie clip. Run the rear apron of your necktie through the loop on the back of the front apron, then clip it to your shirt with a bobby pin.
