Charmed Costumes: Devil Horns

Slip into something outrageous, if only for a night. You needn't be disguised from head to toe: one mischievous piece is enough to get you in the spirit of the evening.

Materials

  • Medium-width headband
  • Modeling clay
  • Black or red acrylic paint
  • Craft glue
  • Glitter
  • Hot glue

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Choose a medium-width headband (ours was 3/8 inch wide). 

  2. Step 2

    To make horns, use lightweight air-drying modeling clay. Roll clay into cones, and curl tops with hands, making sure the cones' bottoms are flat. Let dry according to package directions, then cover with black or red acrylic paint.

  3. Step 3

    When paint is dry, coat one side of each horn with a thin layer of craft glue and apply glitter generously, sprinkling over horns. Let dry, then glitter opposite side.

  4. Step 4

    Once glue is dry, attach horns to headband with hot glue.

    Made these a bit smaller for all my girlfriends. I formed each horn around a bamboo skewer then removed the skewer to leave a [filtered word] though each one.I used fine red glitter and threaded each pair of horns onto a clear elastic knotted in back, large enough to fit around an adult head. The elastic was invisible and could be further hidden beneath your hair. They all wore them and it was amazing how "natural" they appeared!
