Hey guys! Adrianne here with you today, sharing an ultra-easy craft: die cut DIY Halloween hair clips. These sassy clips are fun and festive and you can make them in just minutes, which is perfect for all you instant-gratification crafters out there. I made this set in under ten minutes – and that included cleanup, too!
You can clip these DIY Halloween hair clips into just about any hairstyle or pair them with other accessories like hats or headbands to add a little flair to your hair. If you’re a fan of die-cutting, you’re going to want to make this project immediately.
Supplies needed to make your own DIY Halloween hair clips:
- 1mm Sticky-Backed Felt Sheets.
- Halloween Die-Cut Shapes.
- Sizzix Big Shot (or your favorite manual die-cutting machine).
- Ostrich Feather Hair Clips.
- Black Ribbon-Wrapped Headband (optional).
The 1mm felt has a paper backing which protects a self-adhesive layer. Arrange your dies on a sheet of felt (with the felt side up – which is particularly important if you’re using the “boo” die) and sandwich it between the acrylic cutting pads. Roll the pads through and you get great, clean die cuts.
Pop them out of the dies and peel the paper backing away to expose the adhesive. Decide which direction you plan to use your feather clip, and stick the die-cut shape onto the feather. Tip: if you plan to use your clip in conjunction with a headband, position the clip vertically when you stick your shape on!
You can slip these DIY Halloween hair clips onto ribbon-wrapped headbands or if you’re using a plan headband, you can add a quick strip of ribbon on one side with a bit of hot glue! This will secure the clip to the headband.
You can, of course, just wear them on their own, too. Just clip them into an up-do and it’s practically a costume! It’s one thing I love about Halloween – the whole day is a great excuse to add over-the-top accessories.
