Sequin Flower Tutorial

In case you missed it, here is a tutorial for a fun sequin flower that I created for the Brassy Apple "Bling it" series.

To make this flower you will need:
*Sequins (I got mine at Hobby Lobby.  They need to be the kind that have the tiny hole at the bottom
                 instead of the kind that have a hole in the middle.)
*2 felt circles (4 inches)
*matching thread
*crystal beads

Begin by folding the sequins in half with the hole at the bottom. 

Next, using your needle and thread, begin attaching the sequins to the felt in a circular pattern starting on the outside.

Once you have the center sequins in place, use a little dab of hot glue to attach the crystal beads.

The bottom of your flower will have all the thread showing.  To give it a more finished look and more stability, hot glue the other felt circle to the bottom.  Last, attach whatever kind of pin or clip you would like and you are finished!  Now it's time to try it out!

I thought it would be fun to wear it on a scarf.

And of course this flower would look great in the hair as well.  (Yes, I made a pink one too.)

There you have it!  Some bling that would be the perfect accessory to jazz up any outfit.
