Halloween Hair Clips

This project came directly out of nowhere. I had every intention of making normal, everyday hair clips for Charlotte. The day I started the hair clip project was the same day we'd pulled the Halloween box out of storage, and somehow those pesky spiders snuck their way into my project.

For this project you'll need to grab some hot glue (not with your bare hands...ouch), ribbon, plastic spider or bat rings and a gaggle of naked alligator clips. Using the hot glue, cover the clips with ribbon. Then cut the critters off the plastic rings and glue 'em onto the clips. And you're done. Making them is easier than convincing your preschooler to wear them.

Doesn't she look overjoyed about wearing her new hair accessory? Good thing I didn't even attempt to comb her hair. ;)

Happy Crafting!

Can you believe it's October? This year is flying by.

I've got a whole load of fun stuff in store for you this month. Can't wait to show you what I've been working on! I've got lots of printed goodies to show you, a birthday party for Charlotte in the works, and some (finally!) completed decorating projects.

As a side note, aren't Wyoming sunsets great? This one, in particular, is my favorite to date.
Happy October!
