Note: This craft project was initially created for the website, Kidzui, however that website is no longer online so I moved my content over here.

You could add all kinds of fun buttons to these like pumpkins, fall leaves, ghosts, black cats, and more.


  • Hair ties
  • Halloween buttons
  • Needle and thread


Attach the buttons to the hair ties using your needle and thread.

Halloween hair clips and headbands

  • Embellishments – generally found in the scrapbook area of a craft store. The ones I purchased were a 3 pack of Michael’s Recollections for $3.99.
  • Hair clips
  • Headbands
  • Hot glue sticks and gun


Using your hot glue gun, attach the embellishment to your hair clip or headband. It’s really as simple as that!

Very nice, T! Why is it that I never think of even the simplist ideas like this one? Marisol looks super cute in her Halloween clips. I think I’ll have to give them a try! Thanks for the idea and the pics!

Thanks Ang.  You have no idea how many times I say the same thing though about ideas others have come up with :).

Meike, of course you can use them yourself … why do you think I made M a headband and clips :).  All I need are some bat wings and a black dress and I'm good to go on Halloween … hmmm, now there's a thought.
