Pumpkin Patch Hair Clip

 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!
