Glitter N Glue DIY Bouncy Ball Sequin Drop Earring GLUEKelly’s earrings reminded me of the sequin ornament tutorial I posted for Christmas. (Remember? No, click here to review) The process is very similar. To start add a dab of glue to the bottom of your bouncy ball. Then, place the end of the sequin trim in the glue and start wrapping.  Apply glue as you wrap around the bouncy ball. Continue the process until the ball is completely covered.

  1. They look wonderful! But aren’t they heavy? Maybe ping-pong balls would be lighter, since they are hollow inside.

    • Ping pong balls would be a great idea! But these aren’t heave at all. The balls are really little. I’ve wore them a few times over the weekend and didn’t have a problem!

    When you go to purchase the kit, you can’t see the color options. Also, just wondering, are these earrings heavy?

    • Thanks for letting me know, Sarah! I believe the problem has been fixed.

      The earrings aren’t heave at all. The balls are small and light (not those big ole bouncy balls you might be thinking of). I wore them a few times this weekend and they were fine. They didn’t even pull on my earlobe.
