Easy DIY Rainbow Sequin Hair Clip!

Hey All!

We’re back in the DIY swing of things with this super fun rainbow themed DIY! I made it in celebration of Saint Patty’s Day, which is coming up next month. Check out these super cute easy DIY Rainbow Sequin Hair Clips! Who doesn’t love some cute rainbow accessories? I know I do, especially when they are easy to make. You could easily make these into some matching shoe clips as well. How cute are these folks? Love it!

Here is how to make them!

  • Sequins in rainbow colors
  • White paper
  • Pencil
  • Purple craft foam
  • White school glue
  • Plain hair clip
  • Hot glue gun (optional)

First you draw the shape of a rainbow on a piece of white paper. Make it more of a blocky type rainbow, that will make it easier to fill in with the sequins. You also want to adjust the size of your rainbow according to the size of your hair clip. You can view the photo for reference on how to make a simple rainbow shape.

You then cut out the rainbow shape from the white paper.

Using the rainbow shape as a template, trace it onto a piece of purple craft foam. Cut the rainbow from the craft foam.

Place a thin line of white school glue along the outside edge of the craft foam rainbow shape. This is where you will place your first row of sequins.

You then begin to glue on the sequins! Starting with red, place the sequins carefully, one by one onto the glue line that you just made on the craft foam rainbow.

Let the glue dry completely, and then repeat step six for each color of the rainbow until you have covered the entire surface of your craft foam rainbow shape with sequins. Be sure to let the glue dry completely before continuing on to the next row of sequins or they will slip and slide all around.

Use glue to attach the plain hair clip to the back of the sequined rainbow. This is where you might find it more handy to use a hot glue gun if you like. The glue will dry much faster and will form a stronger bond.

This would be perfect to make and wear for Saint Patrick’s Day or whenever you feel like being a rainbow queen! Rainbows never go out of style!
