Clothes pins + Christmas!

I am not trying to skip right over Thanksgiving...really, I'm not.  I'm just so excited about this cheap little project I did the other day.  I saw a picture in the Pottery Barn magazine of a wreath with pictures attached and decided I could do something similar with some things I already had.  I had clothes pins already, so I just bought glitter glue to make a smaller mess.  It worked perfectly.  Here's the finished product.

(I'm a sucker for polka dots)

I plan on using these to attach Christmas cards and pics to this piece on our wall over the fire place.

(don't have any christmas pics yet, so I just used ones I had)

with Christmas lights on the tree I think these will sparkle and stand out a lot. 

Sadly I have to take them down because it's not Christmas yet.  Oh well.  Excited about Thanksgiving!  Our family is going to the beach!
