I needed something to hang on the front door for Halloween, so I went through my craft and frame stash and came up with a few things to use.

Of course, the first thing I did was paint the frame black.

I wanted to add something fast and decorative to the clothespins, so I decided to stamp them. 

Aren’t they cute? But they still needed something.

So I added some bling.

I attached the wire to the frame by simply wrapping it around the things (I don’t know what to call them) that hold the back on the frame.

Then I attached the Halloween tags to the wire with the clothespins.

 And hung it on the front door with a pretty orange ribbon.

Here’s a close up of one of the tags and the detail on the frame.

So far this is the only Halloween decoration I have for  the outside of the house, so there will be more to come.

I’d also like to send a heart felt “thank you” to all of you for your prayers and well wishes in Hubby’s job search. It’s comforting to know we have so many amazing friends and family wishing the best for us. I know our prayers will be answered.

 Have a Beautiful Weekend!
