A CUTE and CREEPY clothes pin note holder (not to be legally confused in ANY way with a certain scissor-handed character owned by Twentieth Century Fox).
THE EASIEST GROUP CRAFT PROJECT EVER! Seriously, this project can be made for just some spare change and for about a spare hour and with some spare people of all ages. And while Cornelius may look a bit morbid next to YOUR home decor, the possibilities are pretty much endless. Add some ribbon, fabric scraps, lace crap, and YOURS could actually look pretty!

You Will Need
Drill a hole through the body where the arms will go.
Fold the chenille stem in half, twist it a bit, and thread it through the hole to make arms.
Drill a hole at the end of one side of each hinge-style clothespin.
Thread the ends of the arms in the hinge-style clothespin hole and with enough extra to wrap around and secure it all snug-like. It's a good idea to add some glue to the section of stem that's inside the doll body. That will keep the arms from being jenky whilst holding things with the clothespin hands.
Wrap the fuzzy part of the arms with masking tape.
With black paint, fashion some shoes, pants, and shirt stripes on Cornelius. Heck yeah!
With a black colored pencil, draw on some facial features.
Thin down some black/brown paint and stain your doll (if you want). After that dries, continue to add detail with the colored pencil (if you want).
