I don’t know about you, but I think it’s sort of fun to have Halloween hair stuff going on throughout the month which usually means more accessories than hairstyles. I’m assuming most schools or work places don’t allow much dress up until the actual holiday. Hence, this post!
You can be festive with these, but they aren’t really costumes! Most are accessories and not hairstyles (but hair can be a great accessory too!) I had big plans to create a few fun of these Halloween hair accessories but since I was in Puerto Rico for 10 days, and now I’m playing the “catch-up game” I’m sharing some of the favs I found instead!
A couple years back we shared our 5 minute Bat Bow Tutorial, and looking around I found a few other fun ways to include bats as part of a Halloween accessory, so keep scrolling!
This fun Bat Headband could be worn to work, if you don’t want to dress up or just want something festive dancing around on your head for the day! Martha Stewart’s easy tutorial shows you how it’s done.
Consumer Crafts has some cute DIY Halloween headbands if you’ve got a die cut machine, but this one with the bat could be easily cut out by hand from some felt. Then just add some orange feathers and glue it all onto a headband & you’re set.
And for some extra cute bat bows, try using the technique shown in THIS tutorial at Nicest Things blog. She’s used some faux leather and scalloped the sides to make her bat bows. (Note that her site is in German, but you can use Google translate if you need, although her step-by-step pictures are pretty self explanatory.) You could even add some googley eyes like we did on our Bat Bows.
Here’s another fun way to make some cute Halloween Hair Clips using bottle caps. Fizzy Pops blog shows how to make these DIY Halloween Hair Clips in a video tutorial.
If you are wanting a bit scarier looking spider than the one above, don’t forget our DIY Halloween Spider Headband.
If you don’t have time to make a spider like we did, check out Sugar Bee’s super easy, and super cute Spider Headbands tutorial.
We had our spider on a clip so it could be attached to the headband or into a hairstyle, so if you aren’t a fan of headbands, then try our Spiderweb Hairstyle and add your own spider or one like we showed in the above tutorial.
And speaking of spiderwebs, check out this awesome Spiderweb Headband tutorial from Delia Creates. This could be worn all by itself, or as part of your costume.
If you’re extra crafty & good with creating things out of ribbon, and have a sweet toddler, here’s some cute Halloween accessories to try make. If you don’t have the time or aren’t crafty LiliBug Boutique has them made & ready for you!
And while this post is more about accessories, sometimes your hair is the best one! Check out this cute Pumpkin Bun tutorial from my friend Beckie at Infarrantly Creative. I love the way she colors the bun without getting any of the other hair colored!
But if you’re not one to color your hair, try our Pumpkin Bun for Halloween. You’ll just need some ribbon and pipe cleaner instead. We also did a Jack o’ Lantern Bun clear back when we first started blogging where we just added some cut out shapes of a jack o’ lantern to a regular bun. Check out our jack o’ lantern bun here.
I love this DIY Skeleton Hair clip that I found over at Morena’s Corner. You could add these to any hairstyle for an extra spooky touch of Halloween! (no pun intended 😉 lol)
And if you’re not going to dress up, this DIY Medusa Snake Headband from The Tiptoe Fairy is awesome. Depending on the look you are going for, you could spray paint the snakes as she did, or leave them as is. This one is so cool you really don’t need a costume!
After our fun cat ear tutorial last week, I came across this darling DIY Animal Ear tutorial on Gleeful Things. I love that these just hide right in her hair and don’t require anything else for a costume! You can attach these to clips or a headband.
If you’re looking for something that doesn’t require sewing, these DIY Kitten Ear Barrettes are just the thing! Hot glue and some felt and you’re good to go!
And last but not least, if you missed our post last week, check out our DIY Cat Ears (using your own hair). This would be great for school or work!
There are so many other fun Halloween hair accessories out there, but these were some of the ones we thought were easy and cute! Hopefully with the 11 days left before Halloween, you can try a few of these out to get you in the mood for the big day!
