If You Want Something Do It Yourself: Sequin Heart Brooch


Hey girlies, it's Thursday...pretty much one of my favorite days on the blog because I get to share a fun diy project with you all. Today I wanted to show you all how to make your own sequin heart brooch. It's super easy and is just a fun accessory to add to your wardrobe. 
You all know I how much I love sequins and pretty much anything that has a sparkle to it so don't be surprised if you start to see this sequin heart a bit too many times here on the blog.

Do you want one too? Here's how to do it yourself:


I like to draw one side of the heart and then fold the felt down the middle so that when I cut it both sides are the same.


Cut out heart


Begin to hot glue the sequins around the edge


Glue sequins all the way around slightly overlapping each other...it should look something like this.


Glue brooch pin onto the back of your heart

All done & ready to wear!

  11. cute!! these remind me of the ban.do ones... except less expensive (not that they are expensive) but it's more fun to make your own, right!?

  15. That brooch is so very cute! I'm going to give it a try... one day. I'll probably buy all the materials next time I see them, but not get to it for a while :( I have a whole bunch of to-DIY things that I just haven't gotten around to!!
