The iridescent quality of sequins makes it sparkle so much under the sun, it's hard to get a clear picture of it on my hair.
Ooh, and it's pseudo-vintage/Victorian! How can you not make one for yourself!?
Step 1: Materials
20 x Sequins
10 x Seed beads
5 x Small plastic pearl beads
Plain hairpin/bobby pin
Step 2: Thread
Bring your needle and the thread through a piece of felt. This is the point where the middle of the flower lies.
Insert beads and sequins through the needle in this order:
1. small pearl bead
2. small seed bead
3. sequin with the concave side towards the eye of the needle
4. sequin with the convex side towards the eye of the needle
5. small seed bead
6. sequin with the concave side towards the eye of the needle
7. sequin with the convex side towards the eye of the needle
Step 3: Insert
Step 4: First petal
This is how your first petal should look like from the side.
Step 5: Repeat
You can make as many petals as you like. I like to have 5 petals because it makes it look like a sakura.
Step 7: Cut
Cut a small piece of felt and insert it between a plain hairpin/bobby pin. This piece of felt should be smaller than the back of the flower.
Step 8: Glue flower
If you find that your flower seems a bit floppy, you could fold the flower into half to reveal the felt at the centre of the flower. Then add a small dab of glue to the felt and push all the petals towards the centre again!
