DIY Sequin Headband
I have a serious case of the sparklies ~ that is, I crave sequins on anything and everything. So, I decided to make a sequin headband, which turned out to be really easy, and I love the results!
What I like most about this project is that you can use any headband and then simply slide the sequin decorations on and off as you please. Now, on to the project!
What you'll need ~
- Headband (skinny ones are best)
- Sequin trim (2-3 yards of each color is more than enough to make several adornments)
- Hot glue gun
How to make it ~
These instructions are so easy, and they can be applied to just about any shape ~ I think I'll use my leftover sequins to make some hearts or stars. Anyhow, I started with simple circles in three different colors: light pink, dark pink and gold. Since the sequins were only $0.99/yard, I got 3 yards of each color so I could get my sparkle on.
Cut out three circles (different sizes look cool) from your felt. Fire up the glue gun, and when it's hot, you're ready to apply the sequins! Place a dot of glue in the center of the circle and attach the end of your sequin trim.
Now, you're going to glue your sequins down in a spiral pattern. Add a little glue (seriously, just a little or you'll melt your sequins ~ I speak from experience), then wrap the sequins around and around until the felt is completely covered. It's good to let each circle of sequins overlap a little.
Once you have all three circles done, cut a small strip of felt for each one. An inch long and 1/2-inch wide should be more than enough. Glue the ends of each strip to the back of the circle. This is where you'll slip the circles on and off the headband.
Couldn't be much easier, right? I'm thinking this would be a really cute Valentine's Day accessory!
