Want an impressive, yet, simple and inexpensive accessory for your Halloween costume or cosplay? These DIY Devil horns cost less than $4 dollars to make and were super simple to assemble! 😮 I took pics of the steps and what I used in case you want to create your own! You can also use this process as a base for several variations and head pieces.
What you’ll need
- 1 Headband
- Tin Foil
- Masking Tape
- Hot Glue
- Paint (spray paint and acrylic work great)
- Paper towel, rag, etc.
Let’s get started!
- Start with two squares of tin foil. Twist each one into a tube.
- This will be the base for your horns. You can make it as long and as wide as you want. Just add on as needed. (Eventually you’ll be adding tape and the additions will become seamless 😉).
- Keep shaping until you achieve the shape you want. I flattened mine for a different look and made the ends more narrow. Tin foil is forgiving so play around with different styles.
- Once you have the shape you like start wrapping strips of tape around the foil.
- Time to get them placed. Get the position you would like on the head band. Then secure with some hot glue.
- Trim the excess off and finish taping to hide ends.
- I added hot glue in wavy circles around the horn for texture. Don’t worry about it being to “perfect” it gives them texture.
- I sprayed them in a black shimmer spray paint. The black paint was just for a base, but honestly, they looked awesome here! You could use them for lots of costumes. 🖤
- For paint I used a deep burgundy and orange. Using a cloth I blotted the paint over the horns in layers to add depth.
- The colors blended and dried to create the look below. 😈
I love how they came out! 😈
