I buy sequin material from a supplier on Ebay. I then bond the material to ribbon that matches the material. (ex. pink sequin on pink ribbon)

Someone called these a "spikey bow" I'm not sure but sounds good to me. I've been making them for about 3-4 years and I myself call them "funky pony o's"! LOL


what do you use to bond the sequin to the ribbon? I have tried hot glue in the past myself for bonding ribbon to ribbon and it becomes to stiff. Do you sew it?
