The most adorable Halloween craft in the history of mankind.

Ever actually screamed when opening a gift? Well, I have. Last month when I opened my birthday gift from my sister Emily.

Seriously. You have to be kidding. This the the most ADORABLE thing I have ever seen. Emily said she saw clothespin families on Pinterest. Being the genius that she is, she thought to herself... "I bet I could make that with halloween characters". 

So with her permission I am sharing it with you so if you want to attempt to imitate her extreme talent, you can. 

She used a wooden plaque from a craft store and painted the edges black and center a minty green.
I love the glitter around the edge of the plaque. It's all about the details people.

And then of course the little clothespin people.
I think the cat women is my favorite. Or maybe the vampire. Or the bride of Frankenstein??? I don't know, they are all so cute!

I told her she should sell these on etsy, but she said it took her three nights to paint all the characters.

So that's probably not going to happen. Guess you will have to try it out for yourself!

If you have any questions for my sister regarding how she did this, leave them here on this post with your email and I will send them her way.

Thank you Emily!!!! This is the kind of thing my kids will fight over when I'm gone :)

Emily is one of the most humble most amazing people I know. She is extremely talented and yet never flaunts it for attention. I admire her so much. She is always looking for ways to serve people. The halloween clothespin characters are awesome. She probably had so much fun painting those.
