Children’s Crafts: Sequined Christmas Ornaments

MLC_5days

Welcome to 5 Days of Christmas Crafts at Mama’s Learning Corner!  Get your craft supplies ready – this is going to be a fun week.

We’re starting out the first day of Christmas Craftiness with Sequined Ornaments.  I remember making quite a few Christmas ornaments as a child, but this Sequined Ornament was one of my favorites!  I distinctly remember making it in Mission Friends and having a fabulous time pinning each little sequin on.

I hope my kiddos made many great memories making their Sequined Ornaments too!

Items You’ll Need:
Styrofoam balls: 3” or 4” in diameter
Sequins: a variety of fun shapes and sizes
Festive Ribbon 1/2” or 3/4” in width
Straight pins

How to Make Sequined Ornaments

Simply take a sequin and slide the pin head through the hole in the sequin.

Press each pin securely into the styrofoam ball so the pinhead is flush with the ball.

If you’re feeling creative, you can even layer the sequins on one another to create as many designs as your mind can dream up.

Cover the ball completely so it’s as glittery and sparkly as possible.  A sparkly ball shows up so beautifully underneath the lights of the Christmas Tree.

Finally, cut your favorite ribbon to 6 inches.  Gather the two ends, pushing another pin through the ends and then securing it completely into the styrofoam ball.

And you’re done! Hang on the tree and enjoy!
