DIY: Bloody Heart Hair Clip

Hello lovelies! 

I have here a fun and quick hair accessory DIY for you all. I really like the idea of a cute heart hair clip, but decided to add a blood splatter print to help it better fit my style. So just follow the steps and enjoy your new hair clip! 

What you will need:

  1. Scissors
  2. Foam Board (like 99 cents at a craft store)
  3. Pencil
  4. Plain hair clips
  5. Paint brush
  6. Red acrylic paint
  7. A bowl 
  8. A hot glue gun ( I was lacking glue sticks for my gun, so went with the gorilla glue, but I definitely recommend the glue gun!)
  9. Printed out heart lines from the internet
Alright, so I printed out three different size of hearts because I wasn't exactly how big I wanted it to be. I ended making two different ones, the medium heart and the small heart.

Step 1:
Cut out heart outline from the printer page.

Step 2:
Trace your heart on the foam board and then cut out your outline.

Step 3:
Put paint in your bowl. I added a little bit of water to my paint so it would splatter easier. 

Step 4:
Put paint on your brush and flick over the heart. Try and make some of the drops smaller and some larger than others. This will help it make look like actual blood splatter.

(They should look this!)

Step 5:
While you wait for that to dry glue a rectangle of the foam board to your hair clip. Hold down to ensure it sticks.

Step 6:
Attach heart to backing with hot glue gun. Allow to dry for a half hour. 

And voila! A unique and fun hair accessory. Yes it is that easy guys! Hope you enjoyed this little DIY :) 

Oh, did any of you guys get hit by the snow storm crossing the United States? Everyone made a big deal out of it here, I even got work off today, but then it only ended up snowing about 2 inches. Kind of silly how worked up everyone got. At least I got more time to work on my history essay! 

Have a great week guys!

Witchy Woman

{Creepers: T.U.K. -- Dress: Modcloth -- Cardigan: Forever 21 -- Scarf: c/o Skip N' Whistle}

Here's the scarf I received with the cat jumper (from the last post), isn't it amazing? It's a really nice jersey knit and I'm thinking it will be perfect for Spring because it's so lightweight. The main reason I chose this scarf is because the amazing print that the lovely folks at Skip N' Whistle picked out. I must admit that I don't have anything with a witch on it, so it's a cute and unique piece in my ever growing closet. Do any of you own anything witch like? 

I know I've been totally lacking on posts, but seriously, if there were only a few more hours in the day! I went to take pictures last weekend and after the third shot my camera died, it was a very depressing moment. Then on top of that the charger went missing so I had to completely gut clean my room. Ugh! No breaks, I tell ya. Anyhow school and work are both going well and after this week is my Spring break. Can't wait!

Happy March everyone!
