Halloween clothespins made with scrapbook paper

halloween clothespins 2 patterns

We have our house on the market so I am trying to keep personal photos down to a minimum but I love looking at them every day. I came up with this idea so that I can display a lot of pictures but can also remove them quickly when necessary. I like to display photos of my kids when they were small and pictures of my grandkids that correlate to whatever holiday or season we are in. I strung up wire a long time ago as a place to dry the grandkids paintings so I decided to use that to string up the photos with these fun Halloween clothespins. This is a very easy project that you could do with your little ones and they can make new ones for each season or holiday. I’m going to make some birthday ones and hang pictures of each member of the family around their special day.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
