Scary Skull – Halloween Hairclip?
Why do I have a such a thing about skulls lately? However, at least I have recognised I do, and have learnt to live with it!
My lovely, lovely follower Carly sent me a huge box of stuff a little while ago and in the week I went delving in it and hidden away in a folder was a pack of these puffy sticker skulls, to be honest I’ve seen them in the shops and have not been that inspired, but something twigged in my brain … at first I thought of making a brooch/pin, but as I got more and more carried away I could see that they were too wide and would probably not sit straight … BUT after a my weekly trawl through Wolverhampton's finest poundshops I found these very large hairclips …..ah ha!
Anyway, I stuck the skulls on a double thickness of card using Ranger Glossy Accents because it dries really hard, I also used in on the back of the card and back of the stickers to strengthen them and to go get rid of the tackiness of the adhesive on them.
The whole effect is finished off with a few very sparkly flat backed gems on the bow and hair of two skeletons and in any small gaps. I have attached the whole thing onto the clip using foam pads as I have found many a time they are almost impossible to remove and no need for drying time.
Using stickers in this way has made me see the potential of some of the others I have stored away.
