I made these sequin ornaments as a teenager one Christmas eve. They’re not hanging on the tree because I never quite figured out how to attach a ribbon or metal hook to hang, so they’ve been sequestered to the big purple candle.
My problem here and now is the foam. It doesn’t really hold the pins very well. See the missing pin on the bottom of the bell above? Also there’s a whole sequin missing from the green and red egg behind it. Maybe in the last couple of years they’ve come up with a more dense foam. Not sure.
On the plus side these ornaments are so easy to make and kid friendly. You get those white or green colored foam shapes. Then you pick out sequins, pins and maybe some seed beads or ribbon. In a half hour you have a cute little be-sequined foam shape.
This project reminds me of another Christmas craft project: pushing cloves into oranges. Orange and clove pomanders smell so delicious.
