DIY: Sequins ‘N Glue Christmas Ornament

Sequin N Glue DIY Christmas Ornament by Glitter N GlueHave you decorated your Christmas tree yet? Well the clear plastic ornament is THE craft material of the season. It’s a blank canvas that allows you to custom design and DIY your Christmas tree. This project is just one way (…of about a zillion) you could customize your ornament.

Sequin N Glue DIY Christmas Ornament by Glitter N Glue WRAPPlace the end of the sequin trim in the glue and start wrapping. Continue to apply glue as you wrap around the ornament.

Sequin N Glue DIY Christmas Ornament by Glitter N Glue CUTWhen you get to the top of your ornament, use your scissors and cut away any extra trim. Apply glue to the last sequin to be sure your trim is secure.

Sequin N Glue DIY Christmas Ornament by Glitter N Glue CLOSE UPI used about 5 yards of trim to cover once ornament. At .50 cents per yard for trim plus the clear ornament ($1 from Michaels) this one ornament cost me about $3.50.

  7. For my first xmas tree (in 1982!) my mother got a bag of styrofoam ornaments, she already had the sequins, pins, paint & glue, Then she, my sil & I sat at her dining room table, listening to xmas music, sipping tea, & making ornaments. Some were quite hideous (fluorescent paint) & some were pretty good. It’s nice to see this easier, faster update

    • Honestly it didn’t take me long at all. I got wrapped up watching an old episode of Friends and before I knew it I had wrapped two of them. Not bad at all!

  15. I’m going to snag some ornaments after the holidays (and sales start up again) to do this DIY for next year!!! It looks amazing!

  16. Very good idea and it is so pretty!

    December 10, 2012 at 4:19 pm

  17. I think that this is a brilliant idea, I love sequins 🙂

    December 10, 2012 at 7:55 pm

  18. I love this so much! I feel like it would get difficult, and I would get annoyed halfway through, when the sequins tried to slide before the glue dried, or if they dont go in a straight line. But regardless, I love them. A lot.

    • I’m usually the 1st to get annoyed (I have zero patience), but I didn’t have any problems with this project. It really was easy breezy beautiful cover girl! Give it a try!!!

      December 11, 2012 at 5:02 pm

        December 12, 2012 at 10:33 am
