These eye catching sequin bows are pre-made for your crafting and bow making convenience and with a quick little minute and small dab of hot glue, you can create an attractive and blingy masterpiece. You really can add these great bows to anything, but I am loving how incredible these shiny bows look coupled together with some adorable elastic to make a quick and super easy hair accessory perfect for babies, little girls, young women, and you!

The Ribbon Retreat is full of fabulous fold over elastic in bold and rich colors, designs like chevrons, dots and damasks, and fun ruffly ruffles. And, all of these elastics look fantastic with our sequin bows found in brilliant and bright colors from Lime to Festive Fuchsia and can be purchased in a 2″ size or a JUMBO size.

I wanted to make sure to showcase both sizes, so I coupled them together to create these adorable and fun headbands.

Let’s get started…

Hot glue a 2″ sequin bow to the top of a jumbo sequin bow.

To create a headband with the fold over elastic…

1. Measure and cut one piece of elastic for the headband and a small 2-3″ piece for the loop to attach a clip to.
2. Put a small dab of hot glue on one end of the elastic.
3. Hot glue ends of elastic together to create the headband.
4. Attach the small piece of elastic to the headband. Lay small piece against the headband and apply hot glue to the back of the headband where the small piece of elastic will create a loop.
5. Adhere one end of the small piece of elastic to hot glue on headband.
6. Wrap other end of the small piece of elastic around headband and adhere it to the other end.
7. Hot glue a felt circle to the inside of the headband.
8. Hot glue sequin bow to felt circle with the headband sandwiched in between.

If you can see the felt circle on the front of your bow, remove the small piece.

These sequin bows are so cute, I couldn’t make just one. For my next headband, I used our ruffle fold over elastic to add even more personality. I also attached this bow to a hair clip that can easily be removed from the headband and used as a clip as well. So cute!

To create this ruffle headband, follow the same steps above with the addition of lining your clip with the ruffle elastic and hot gluing the clip to the back of the sequin bow (pictured below in steps 5-8).

    i was just browsing for new images regarding baby headbands and i must say that these are really gorgeous. I also run a blog promoting the headbands from amazon.com but i must admit that such beautiful ones are not available there.

    $1 for the bows is really cheap, i must admit. I run my site based on affordable headbands but nothing so good with $1. Great work and great value for money!!
