Step 1: Draw Your Seahorse
Draw a seahorse on piece of paper and then trace onto cardboard. Cut out your cardboard seahorse.
Step 2: Start Wrapping
Start wrapping the seahorse with ribbon of your choice (non-wire), making sure to use your hot glue gun to secure pieces.
Step 3: Cover Completely
Make sure your seahorse is covered completely with the ribbon.
Step 4: Start Adding the Sequins
This is where this project gets fun! Start adding sequins to the seahorse with the got glue gun, making sure to work in small areas at a time.
Step 5: Sequins Tip
I didn't want my sequins to be flat on the seahorse, so I only pressed the top half of the sequin down. I also used tweezers for this part because it made it much faster and easier to pick up and put down the sequins.
Step 6: Add Seahorse to Gift
When you are happy with how your seahorse looks, you are ready to add it to your gift and make someone extremely happy with such a gorgeous gift!
