Sparkle Flower Hair Accessory – A Free Crochet Pattern
This is a simple and elegant sparkle flower hair accessory to make for those special occasions. It can also be worn as a beautiful bracelet too! The yarn is what really makes it pop with the metallic thread running through it and the pretty sequins. I topped it off with a beveled bead in the center for an extra splash of bling.
I designed this pretty sparkle flower hair accessory for a family friend’s Quinceanera. Some of the girls wore them in their hair and a few wore them on their wrist as a bracelet. They turned out to be just the right amount of sparkle to match their dresses!
