One of the best ways to add an instant Halloween Costume to your look is through an amazing hair accessory. It’s perfect for those non-dresser-uppers and kiddoss who need a simple costume for school. It’s been a while since we’ve shared a fun DIY tutorial, and our spooky Halloween Headbands are the perfect hairpiece for the season!
Our inspiration is drawn from our vampire friends from Hotel Transylvania 2, which comes out in theaters this Friday. Complete with bats and spiders, leaves and thorns – we hoping they’ll earn us our vampire fangs!
Here’s how to make em’:
- Gather materials. We picked up a garland of fake black and glittery purple leaves, a stem of black plastic glittery thorns, bats, and glittery spiders from our local craft store. A glue-gun and a thick headband are needed too.
- Simply cover the headband completely with leaves, securing with a glue-gun. I like to use a tool to help press the leaves in place and save my fingertips from pesky burns (anything will work – I happened to grab a matchbox car!). Make the leaves stick out in various directions to make the headband look more like a statement headpiece. Make sure to only secure small leaves close to each end, so it won’t be uncomfortable around the ears.
- After the leaves dry – adorn the headband with gross bats and spiders. Add a touch of thorns to one side only. Make sure to pick off any glue residue and let your masterpiece set.
And just like that – she’s ready for the vampire ball!
