Tonight I'm sharing a sweet pumpkin hair clip!
I'm using EasyCast Resin, opaque yellow coloring, translucent red coloring, glow in the dark glitter, green ribbon, and a pumpkin mold.
This mold is one of several great molds by http://juliesbits.blogspot.com/ They work wonderfully with resin and polymer clay and can even be used for food! You can check them out here:

Mix up a batch of EasyCast resin.
*ETI recommends wearing gloves for your safety* Gloves also help keep your nails nice!
Color it yellow and add a touch of red to get the shade of orange you like.
I also added some glow in the dark glitter to the mix.
Fill the mold with resin and let set for 24-72 hours until completely hardened.
Isn't the detail of this mold great?!
To turn it into a hair pin you'll also need a hair clip and some E-6000.
Make a cluster of loops with the green ribbon....
I'm using the hair clip to help hold them in place...
Glue the ends of the loops together to secure them, a toothpick helps get into the tiny folds...
Make a second cluster for the other side...
Glue these together by overlapping the ends...
Then add some E-6000 to the pumpkin and firmly press in the center of the ribbon.
Let this set for a while before continuing.
Now add some E-6000 to the hair clip...
Press it firmly to the back of the ribbons and let it set for 24 hours to reach maximum adhesion.
What a sweet little hair clip with the ribbons acting as the pumpkin's vine!
In the dark the glitter adds a ghoulish glow!
