Skeleton Hair Clips }
Here is my second Halloween inspired hair accessory. I’m going to show you two different versions of skeleton hair clips you can make – and they’re so quick and easy that you’ll have no trouble making them in time for Halloween night.
  • cardboard
  • marker
  • scissors
  • white craft foam
  • hot glue gun
  • hair barrette/bobby pins

1. draw a bone on a piece of thin cardboard – you can print a picture from the internet to trace or just free hand it like I did // 2. cut the cardboard bone // 3. trace it onto a piece of white craft foam // 4. cut the foam bone // 5. glue to the top of a barrette // 6. make sure the barrette is open, so it isn’t glued shut – you’ll need to be able to open and close it to wear it!

Follow the same steps as before, but make the bones thinner and glue them to the tops of bobby pins. I slid a piece of cardboard in the bobby pin while the glue dried so I wouldn’t glue it closed.

Did you know that the flat part of a bobby pin is actually the top? And the ridged side is supposed to go in your hair? Kind of mind blowing, right?

Alternatively, you can also use the pins as a cute accessory for your clothes. Yes, I was wearing shorts in October. We had some crazy warm weather a few days ago.
