  • Step 1

    First,you need to make yourself a template.Draw a small bow shape on a piece of thin card(or paper)and cut it out.

  • Step 2

    Now,roll out a small piece of fimo or air hardening clay(in the colour of your choice)and place your template on it.Use a knife or something to cut it out.

  • Step 3

    Use a wire to poke a hole near each of the top sides of the bow.Let it dry(or bake it,if you are using fimo.)

  • Step 4

    While it is drying,take lots of different sequins(they should be different shades of the same colour as your clay/fimo.)and cut them up into tiny bits(I know it's tedious,but you don't need much and the outcome is great!)

  • Step 5

    Once the bow is dry, coat it with a layer of pva glue(or any glue that dries clear)and pour your sequins over it.Let it dry.When it is dry,make sure every thing is stuck properly and coat it with a very thin layer of glitter glue.

  • Step 6

    Use a wire to poke out the holes you made earlier(they probably got sealed from the glue.)Outline it with black permanent marker.Add a final coat of varnish.

  • Step 7

    Now just put some thread through the holes and put it on a chain!Or you could hot glue a ring base to it and use it as a ring!!!!!
