Day 2 of 31 Days of Halloween

It's day 2! You have joined the 31 Days of Halloween blog hop, this is a most awesome hop of everything spooky, kooky and creepy related. If you hop along and leave love, you might even win a prize!

Today I've created a clip that can go on the fridge, it's a giant clothes pin with a magnet on the back.  It's painted matt black.

I started off with a piece of black netting that I got with a full-sized skeleton I bought.  I created a rosette with it and glued it to the peg.  Then I added a printed picture of a creepy carnival poster.  I roughed it up by distressing the edges and then scrunching up the paper.  I then glued on a little skeleton that I inked up a little.  It was way to bright and clean for my liking.  I also tied a little scarf around it's neck and adhered some spiders.  I tucked in a skull and crossbones pick (these are usually used for cupcakes, but they're great for crafts too).  Then I inked the edge of the bunting (that I printed and cut out), roughed up and then glued to the peg.  To finish off I added some silver beads and red Stickles.

You can see the poster a little better here.

Here you can see the side view. The clothes peg is about 3in tall.
