This is an idea I posted years ago – Tie dye hair extensions – and I swear there was nothing like it then. I’ve seen tie dye hair clips on the market now, but why buy when you can make your own?

Right? Isn’t that the crafty way of life?

Beyond Halloween

Sure it’s fun for Halloween, Christmas, I also made then for the 4th of July. But think about it, you can make a set of rainbow ones, or hot pink, for anytime of the year!
Okay, let’s do this!

How to make this Halloween hair idea

Supplies for tie dye hair clips:

Tie dye in orange, green, purple and black. I like this tie dye kit because it has colors for the whole year!

Clip-on human hair extensions (blonde)

small dishes

paint brushes

gloves, plastic table cover

spray bottle with water

raised rack

Set out the table cover. The dye will stain permanently!

Mix the bottles of dye with water and shake until the powder is fully dissolved. 
Squirt some of the dye in small bowls. One color per bowl.

Put on the gloves and set out the first hair clip. Mist with the spray bottle to dampen the hair.
Set the hair on top of the raised tray. This is so the colors will not bleed into each other.

Using the brush, apply the dye to the hair. The brush will give you more control as opposed to squirting the dye out of the bottle.

Wrap in plastic and let set for six hours.
