Halloween Bat Wing Hair Clips DIY

Want to add more charms to your Halloween costume or just want a simple touch up to embrace Halloween without spending too much? My DIY bat wing clip is super cute and very inexpensive to make as well. Also, it's a fun project to do with your kids, they will be thrilled with their masterpiece to wear it on the day.

What if I don't have a cutting machine?

The good thing is you don't need to have a machine to make it, you can print out the Pdf file on a card stock paper from your printer then cut it out and use it as a template. Transfer the pattern to your faux leather fabric sheet/felt using chalk or water-soluble marking pen. Cut the pattern out and assemble the batwing hair clip by watching the tutorial video, you should have your batwing clip made in no time.

No more guesswork

In this tutorial, I will show you step by step from sending the faux leather fabric sheet to the machine, using heat n bond to make the bat wings to the complete process of assembling the hair clips. After finishing the video, you will have an idea on what the machine setting to cut out the faux leather sheet and the stiff felt as well.

Do I need to use a stiff felt sheet to give the wings extra support?

I used the stiff felt as a backing because I used a super fine glitter sheet for the wings, it obviously couldn't give enough strength for the wings to "stand up". If you are using a thicker leather sheet or not going to make it stand then you can skip this part. Or if you want the wings stiffer, I would suggest using a 1.5mm stiff felt sheet instead of a 1mm stiff felt sheet.
