It’s time to get you prepped and ready for Valentine’s Day! And the only way to do that? Sequin heart bows! No matter who you’re saying “I love you” to on this adorable holiday, sequins should definitely be involved. Craft up one of these inexpensive bows for you, or your kiddo, and spread the love!
Strong Fabric-Safe Glue (I used E-6000, my fave!)
Heart Pattern (Just make your own from cardstock! Mine was 2 1/2″ at it’s widest point.)
Hot Glue Gun
Cut out three pieces of felt: One heart, one 12″ by 2.5″ rectangle and one 4″ by 1″ rectangle.
Spread a bit of glue on the point of your heart and attach the end of your sequin trim.
Begin to weave the sequin trim back and forth in lines, adding glue line by line as you go.
Keep going until you have covered the entire heart.
You’re likely to have a few spots where you can see the felt popping through around the edges. Pull a few individual sequins off your leftover trim and glue them by hand in those spots to touch it up.
Now you have a perfect sequin heart! If you simply want the heart, go ahead and add a clip or pin to the back. If you want to make the bow (you know you want to!), keep on following!
Pick up your larger felt rectangle and make it a into a loop by hot gluing the short ends together.
Pinch the bow in the center and wrap your smaller rectangle piece around it. Hot glue to secure and form a bow.
Hot glue your clip to the back of the finished bow.
Finally, glue your sequin heart to the center of the bow. And you are ready to go for Heart Day!
Wishing everyone a little bit of love and sparkle this Valentine’s Day!
