DIY Easy Pinned Sequin Ball Ornaments

Whip up some sparkling, shimmering ornaments super-quick, and with only a couple of supplies!  This can even be a great project for kids to work on their fine motor skills.

Materials:sequins in leaf shapes or snowflake shapes / pearl-head pins in red or pearlized / round styrofoam balls (you can paint them different colors before using if you don’t like the white showing through) / glitter ribbon

Tools: glue gun / scissors

How to:

1. Cut a short length of ribbon, enough to go around the styro ball and create a hang loop.2. Use the glue gun to attach around the ball at the center.  Loop the end of the ribbon over itself and glue together to hang.3. Use the pins to attach sequins all over the ball.  For the holly ornament, use 2-3 leaf sequins strung on one pin, and for the snowflake ornament, use 1-2 sequins on one pin.4. Keep adding pinned sequins until the ball is completely covered.

Hang on your tree, pile in a bowl, attach to a garland or a wreath – however you decide to display these pretty ornaments, they’re sure to be the star of your holiday decorating!

    Carly, this is such a cute idea! I love the way you used the sequin leaves.

    (Usually I think the leaves look more like feathers, but on your ornament, they definitely look like leaves.)

      Thanks Sarah! I was looking for green-colored leaf sequins, but couldn’t find any:-( The gold worked out okay, except I probably should have spray-painted the ball gold first. I pulled out the pins after I took the picture, and it looked so much better spray-painted! Live and learn, I guess.;-)
