1. Clip a bobby pin on the end of the ice pop stick, so the stick is situated perpendicular to the bobby pin and going through its center.
2. Coat one side of the bobby pin with the nail polish.
3. Put the ice pop stick down on the work surface with the painted side of the bobby pin facing upward.
4. Repeat steps 1-2 five more times, so you have a total of six painted bobby pins.
5. Allow the paint to dry.
6. Remove the bobby pins from the ice pop stick.
7. Apply a drop of hot glue to the bottom of one of the plastic spiders, and affix it to the curved end of one of the bobby pins.
8. Apply glue to the remaining three spiders, and attach them to the bobby pins.
9. Place a drop of glue on the back of each of the googly eyes, and attach each one to a separate bobby pin.
10. Allow the glue on all the pieces to dry thoroughly.
11. Your spooky bobby pin barrettes are ready to be worn.
