Devil horn hair clips

The kids wanted me to dress up today. I didn’t. I wanted to (and did) wear a Halloween shirt.
But I did make some devil horn hair clips.

Supplies
Fimo or other brand polymer clay (the kind that bakes to harden)
hair clips
Strong glue
glitter (optional)

I started by shaping my clay horns and coating them in glitter. After coating them with glitter I baked them according to package directions.

Then I glued them to hair clips. This took me 3 tries!! I started with E6000 and smaller hair clips than the ones pictured and they fell off. Then I went with the bigger hair clips in the next picture, and 2 ton epoxy which also didn’t hold (well it did until I bumped one of them into something) Finally I used the tried and true hot glue gun and so far they have stayed in place.

I think hot glue was the way to go, I banged one against something (on purpose this time lol) and not only did the horn stay on the clip but the entire clip slid out of my hair and landed on a hard floor. I almost always have hair clips around, and I used leftover glitter from another project, and the polymer clay was less than $1 on sale. So this is also an inexpensive project.
