Fall and Halloween themed accessories just make an outfit even cuter so I had to make some pumpkin-themed hair clips for my little one for when we go pumpkin-picking. These DIY Halloween hair clips come together very quickly and easily with very few materials and no advanced tools needed. It’s a perfect beginner craft project and a good boredom buster for crafty people. Check out how I made them so you can make them for your little or for yourself!
Supplies needed to make your own DIY Halloween Hair Clips:
Step 1. To begin making your DIY Halloween hair clips, cut your pumpkin pieces. Fold your felt piece in half and cut half of the oval shape with the center on the fold to reveal an oval shape for the middle. Cut another oval shape and cut it in half for the sides.
Step 2. For the stalk, cut a green piece of felt.
Step 3. Assemble your pumpkin – glue the ovals together, with the middle oval on top. Once dry, glue the stalk piece behind the middle oval to create your pumpkin shape.
Step 4. To attach your pumpkin onto a hair clip, first cut a rectangular piece of felt and sandwich that between the hairclip prongs. Apply hot glue onto the top side of the felt and attach the backside of your pumpkin shape, making sure it is centered. Wait for that to dry.
Step 5. If you are creating matching clips, be mindful in attaching the second hair clip in the opposite direction on the other pumpkin piece. That way when it is worn on each side of the head, both hair clips are facing one direction.
And you are done – easy peasy am I right? Rock your pumpkin DIY Halloween hair clips for your next fall outing, Halloween festivities or even Thanksgiving!
