DIY Clay Halloween Pins

Who says Halloween has to be scary? Not me, that’s for sure! I love getting ready for Halloween, so even though there’s still a week until the big day I made these little pins and hair clips to wear in the meantime. They’re small and kind of subtle, but once you see their smiling faces you can’t look away!

I was inspired by these heart-shaped hairpins – don’t googly eyes make everything 100 times cuter? My personal favorites are the pumpkins. These are super quick to make, so it doesn’t take long to whip up a bunch. They’d make great party favors for a Halloween party!

How-To

DIY Clay Halloween Pins

Step 1
Warm the clay in your hands by kneading it. Once it’s a bit softer, use your jar / rolling pin to roll the piece flat until it’s about 1/4” thick. Use the cookie cutters to cut out the Halloween shapes.
