Show you Batpride by making and wearing a cheap and easy hairclip
I had made this as part of the 30 Days of Creativity for the theme "Superheros".

It is made from upcycled cardboard painted yellow for background with the "Bat" symbol cut from upcycled cardboard from a package covered with Modge Podge Dimensional Magic and glued to a barrette. Most of the time on this was waiting for the coats of paint and the Modge Podge to dry.

The total cost was well under $1.00 and it turned out very professional looking.
