Twisted Sugar Twine project - Halloween Hair pins

Yippee! It's another Twisted Sugar Twine project day for me, and today, I'm all about Halloween.  Actually I've been working on FOUR Halloween projects at once (never have I ever worked on more than 2 projects at once, so this is all new to me!) Surprisingly enough - I feel quite organized doing it this way, and I don't feel like I need to stress out about my next project because it has already been started. 

Anyway, for my project - I thought that I'd go totally simple, yet cute, and useable!  I made Halloween hair pins for my daughter!  And, I'm sure anyone can make these - no skill required!

Aren't they cute???

All you need are these items, plus some charms for your pins - which I didn't take a picture of...

...then you take the baker's twine and wrap them around the adhesive foam strip, round and round.... until you complete the strip.

Once that's done, you put a strip of hot glue on the back of the twine and adhere to the bobby pin. Cut off the extras (actually from this strip, I was able to make 2 pins) and dab a little bit of hot glue on the ends to prevent unraveling.

The base is done, and all you need to do is to add some charms! For mine, I cut out some files from SVGCuts Dreadful Halloween Cupcake Wrappers Kit (RIP, pumpkin, spider, haunted house), Haunted Hemlock Cards SVG kit (ghost) and Monster Mash SVG Collection (candy corn) and applied Paper Mod Podge and Glossy Accents on it. It's totally waterproof, so it's safe to wear it in the rain! Hot glue them on to the pins and Ta-da! It's done! Now, wasn't that easy???

Here's more pics:

These make great trick-or-non-treats for little girls! My daughter had one of these pins in her hair and loved it! (It was the RIP one...lol...) You can use the same idea and wrap it around a bigger foam strip to put them on snap clips!

Hope that I've inspired you to give it a try - it's really fun to make!

Leave me some love if you liked it :) and even if you didn't like it - still leave me a comment, cause I LOVE to hear from you!
