Put pins through the holes in the sequins. Then stick the pin with the sequin into the Styrofoam ball. Continue this until the whole ball is covered, but make sure you leave two little spots for the feathers to go into on the sides of the ball.

Step 3: The Wings

So now that your Styrofoam ball is covered in sequins, You have to move on to the next step which is the wings of the snitch. To make the wings glue to pins to the Pheasant feathers, then let it dry. When they are dry, find the two non-sequinned holes and stick the pins with the feathers into it.

Step 4: Ta-Da!

Now you are done with the Golden Snitch. The Golden Snitch is for decoration purposes only. It is not to be played with because it can easily be broken.

I was thinking you could use gold colored foil for the smooth features like in the film.
Also maybe make silver feathers.... that would look cool! I will try making this sometime.

Yeah, we used to make Christmas ornaments like this! (which gives me an idea. . . ) Any chance for a sharper picture of the finished snitch?

Right now, I am unable to put up a better picture because my camera is broken, but once I get it fixed or get a new one, I'll make sure to upload a better picture.
I think that looks great! I haven't seen this technique in a long time. What a great idea to use it for a snitch! It's perfect!
