M&J is constantly getting in new items and I have fallen in love with this new sequin trim. It’s a gorgeous scalloped edge trim on a netting. There are so many uses for this trim and a headband is an easy one. One of the girls who work on the floor took the gold version of this trim and made a simple flower from it for her hair. I was instantly inspired to make my own version.
I’m a huge fan of headbands, hairclips, and hair ties to hold back and adorn my long hair. Working at M&J has allowed me to expand my collection and have a different look everyday. I’ll show you how to make a sequined flower that can then be glued to a headband or hair clip, or even sew a pin on the back for other uses. It only takes a few minutes to make, so it’s also a great last minute gift idea.

1.) Thread your needle and knot the end. Weave the needle through the sheer side of the trim about 1” away from the edge. Weave it in and out every ½” or so to create a gathering stitch. When you get to the end, pull the trim down this thread to gather it up. Gather it to about 3-4” long and knot the end securely to keep it gathered.
2.) Sew one gathered end to the other. You should now have a circle that is ruffled, this will be your flower. You can now either sew on or glue the button to the middle to cover the hole. If you glued it, once it is dry you can move to the next step.
3.) Now you can choose to glue this to a headband, a hair clip, or a pin back and you are set!
