I love you clothes pins: Write a message with a FINE POINT sharpie so it doesn't smear. Write "I love you" on a paper. Cut it out, and hot glue it to the clothes pin end. Would be cute for a care package!
I don't know that I'd choose to do this on a wall, but cool idea just the same. DIY project using a variety of colorful magazine pages cut into strips. Pick a silhouette/trace an outline. Then cut up the magazine strips and tape/glue it all together.
