Clothes Pin Heart

While out blog hopping :) I saw this adorable clothes pin heart
(BUT I can't remember the blog I saw it on to link back,
so if any of you Awesome followers know please,
please send me the link so I can link back to her.)
Thanks

EDIT : I'm so excited , guess who found me :) Jenn from Clean and Scentsible, the original creator of the Clothes Pin Wreath. YEA ! ! !

Now onto the Craft

I started out by spacing out and clipping clothes
pins to a firm piece of paper.

Next I cut out different strips of scrapbook paper,
I made each strip a little longer than the clothes pin so I had
something to hold onto while I mod podge the paper to the pin
Isn't Modge Podge the best ? ?
The white paper on left looks a little bumpy because
I hadn't scraped the extra modge pod off yet :)

All my pins drying . . .
Notice the extra paper hanging off the pins . . .

When they were done drying I flipped them over and

used a razor blade to cut them off.

Next, I had the Man of the House bend my hanger into a heart . . .

my attempts kept coming out looking like a kidney :)

My heart and pins ready to go . . .

After a while clipping on and moving around until the pattern
looked
perfect, I put just a little dab of hot glue to secure them to the hanger.
My wreath was featured over at My Backyard Eden !

That is SO stinkin cute Kristie!
You should glue shades of green paper on the other side of the clothes pins and you'll be all set for St. Paddy's day. I love it!!

LOVE this...so cute and easy. At first, I thought the pins were painted, until you said you used scrap paper (even better). I'm bookmarking this so I can copy you later LOL!

I just do not understand what the purpose of the scrap paper is if your just hot gluing the pins to the hanger. I am trying so hard to figure it out, so I can do this project with my daughter
