DIY Lightening Bolt Glitter Clip


I have a tiny obsession growing with the bride of frankenstein. It started last year with this train wreck of a costume. Oh, how motivated I was last year. I can't believe how crazy I was to do all of those different characters. If you want to see last year's Halloween Costume Series go right ahead.

This DIY can also be used as a regular bad-ass hair clip year-round.


1. cut any size lightening bolt shape out of a piece of felt. I used gray so it matched the silver glitter.

2. Spread glue all over the top of the felt shape

3. Layer glitter on top of wet glue. I like to use different sizes of glitter. The larger kind for child crafts and the finer size glitter to fill in the spaces. It may sound tedious but I like the way it turns out. After the first layer of glue & glitter has dried I add more glue and glitter till I am satisfied with the results.

4. Glue an alligator clip or bobby pin to the back. You can also add another piece of felt to the back like I did but it's not necessary.
