Patriotic Clothespin Wreath

I have now made two Clothespin wreaths.  The first one was for a friend for her little consignment shop, and now I've made one for myself - specifically for The 4th of July.
After spray painting 54 clothespins white, I used five different scrapbook papers to cover them.  
I placed them randomly around an inside piece of a 6" Embroidery hoop, which I had also painted white
Then for a subtle tribute to the holiday, I added three star cookie cutters.

To hang it, I had bought some patriotic ribbon, but the brightness of the colors didn't work with the soft shades of the paper.  So I took some scrap denim that I had from an old pair of jeans, and using fabric glue, created a 2" wide band to hang it from.

So Excited to now have one of these for myself, and to Finally have some Patriotic decor.

What a darling clothes pin wreath! I love it and want to try this out for myself. How did you adhere the clothes pins to the embroidery hoop? Thanks!
