Picture of Sequins Ornaments

We had a sequins ornament on our Christmas tree when I was little and I was just thinking about it recently. I decided to see if I could make one myself! The design will vary, but here are the basics for making your very own sequins and bead ornament! It really looks wonderful with the Christmas tree lights :)

Step 1: What you'll need

Picture of What you'll need
(Specifics will vary.)

  • Sequins - use size and color of choice. I got the variety pack shown which had 5 colors in 4 different sizes. I organized them all (because I'm crazy) and used the ones I designated as the "large" which were about 5mm or 7mm.
  • Sequin Pins (they are flat ended 3/4 inch pins)
  • Seed Beads
  • Styrofoam Balls (I used 2 1/2 inch, but use what you want/can find)
  • Ribbon (I'm really sad this didn't start with "S")
  • Glue (optional)
  • Marker

i have been making my ornaments for years & now i have 3 grandsons and I am making ornaments for them. I purchased a 48 ornament container for each one and as i make ornaments i add to their collections. i plan on giving the collection to them when they get married. I just love all the new and different ideas that are on this site.
