Halloween Hair Clips

Active Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Make your own Halloween hair clips


  • Alligator clips
  • 7/8" Halloween ribbon


  • Hot glue/hot glue gun
  • Scissors


    Plug in your glue gun while you're getting your supplies ready

    Put a little bit of glue in the middle of the flat side of the clip and press your ribbon down

    Now glue the whole front part of the clip and press the ribbon down

    Open up your clip, leave an inch of extra ribbon and cut

    Hot glue on the remaining 1" of ribbon and press on the inside of the clip

    Now cut 2, 4" pieces and 1, 1.5" piece

    Using 1 of the 4" pieces at a time, glue a dot in the center of the backside of the ribbon and wrap both sides in and press

    Now do step 7 with your other 4" piece

    Glue these together in a x pattern

    Take your 1.5" piece of ribbon and glue on top of the x shaped bow and glue both sides under

    Take your lined alligator clip and glue a line down the center, and press your ribbon bow on top gently

    Since you're using hot glue your clip should dry quickly and is ready for Halloween!
