Sequin Rainbow Hair Clip

This Sequin Rainbow Hair Clip is the CUTEST! And it's easy to make. Surprise someone in your life for St. Patrick's Day or Pride Month, or make one together.

We find ourselves with another snow day!

I have to be honest – western MA is not having a record-breaking winter here. At least not Northampton. I think this is the third or fourth time that we’ve found ourselves in what our local weather nut calls “The Snow-Lover’s Triangle of Disappointment.” My family in New Jersey, and Cassidy’s family house in Cape Cod are getting hit way worse than us. So maybe we WON’T be stuck with kids in school in late June, when summer camp is already happening. That said, the kids are home with me today. Des is reading (or trying, anyway) himself Dr Seuss books and Scarlet is refusing to help me with photos for my blog. Luckily she has a few redheaded cutie friends who are more than happy to help model this amazing hair clip:

It’s really cute, isn’t it? You know I love St. Patrick’s Day and you still have time to make this! And if not, Pride MONTH is just that – a whole month. Also rainbows are every day and eternal. Never forget that. It’s rainbow season ALL YEAR LONG.

Sequin Rainbow Hair Clip


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


1 – 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.

2 – Cut out the rainbow shape from the white paper.

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

4 – Cut the rainbow from the craft foam.

5 – 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.

6 – Starting with red, place the sequins carefully, one by one onto the glue line that you just made on the craft foam rainbow.

7 – 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.

8 – 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.

Be honest. Would you steal this from your daughter and wear it yourself? (I would)

  1. So cute indeed and we, too, are having some hell of a winter though. More snow today. School was actually open. Just glad my kids get a bus, otherwise I seriously would have just kept them home as I hate driving in snow, ice and slush. We need spring ASAP now!

  2. This is such a fun and easy craft to make. My daughter would love a rainbow hair clip!!! So much so she would not let me get the opportunity to steal it. 🙂
