Add sequins to your clothing to create a little flash of color and sparkle to your wardrobe. Sequins look cute on fancy and casual clothing. You may add them to a swimsuit, an evening gown or to a pair of jeans. Use brightly colored sequins to add words or patterns or color to a t-shirt or use gold or silver sequins to add drama to evening wear. Sequins are easy to sew on and allow you to make your clothes unique.

Things You'll Need

Thread a sewing needle with thread that matches the color of the sequins. Put a knot in the thread at the end. Run the needle through the sequin and, perhaps, also through a bead, if you choose to use a small bead at the center of the sequin. Either knot the thread at the back of the sequin or continue adding more sequins.

Add sequins to a t-shirt to spell out a word or phrase or to simply add patterns of color. Sequins add a burst of color to any outfit. It is easy to sew them on and they add sparkle and whimsy to clothing.

Decorate a swimsuit with sequins and beads to add sparkle. Sequins shimmer in the sunlight so they are a lovely accent to swimsuits.

Make patterns out of sequins on a pair of jeans. You may also want to make your initials out of sequins to monogram jeans or other clothing.


  • Use varying sizes of sequins to add interest to your clothing.

  • Add beads, too, to add glimmer to the sequins.

  • Be careful to knot the sequins on tightly so that they stay attached to the clothing.
