Easy Spring Décor

In my powder room, I have a frame that holds chicken wire. I use it to add a little touch of seasonal décor to the tiny room. I usually find a greeting card that I like and then cut it apart so I can show the front of the card as well as what might be written inside. It a simple way to bring the season or holiday into another room of the house. I use clothes pins to hold the card in place.

Originally I was using the first set of five clothes pins that I decoupaged with craft paper to match the room.

As each season rolls around, I’ve been trying to change the clothes pins as well. I bought a package of 50 at Wal-Mart of just a few dollars.
To get ready for spring, I pulled out three new clothes pins and put a quick coat of yellow paint on the top side.
 Then I used some rubber stamps that I picked up from the dollar bin at the craft store. With a little dab into ink then were ready to go.

I love projects that I can prep, finish and clean up so quickly. It’s a great way to get motivated for a bigger project too.

That's pretty slick! I think a little magnet on the clothes pin would make it work on metal surfaces - like the fridge.

:) Happy Spring!!!
