clothespin wreath

my dear friend amy and i led the mops craft this morning.

inspired by THIS blog post, we made a clothespin wreath. 

here's what we did:
-took a wire hanger and shaped it like a heart. the original project didn't require cutting the hanger. But we wanted a smaller heart, so we cut the bottom and twisted it to close the heart. 
-next, i found a wood slat a little over 7"x2" and spray painted it with chalkboard paint. 
-attached all the clothespins.
-attached the chalkboard by clipping it in. 
-wrote a sweet message.

display the wreath anywhere indoors. i choose the pantry door. been writing messages to my husband ever since!
