  • Using Sequins For Crafting

    There are so many things that you can do with sequins. Those shiny little discs that come in all colours  shapes, and sizes can add sparkle to any object and craft project available there is. They are especially much in demand for holiday and Christmas craft projects that brighten any room. Here are four craft projects that you can do with sequins.

    The first project is the Christmas ball. If you're tired of your previous holiday's decorations, making your very own customized sequinned balls is as easy as one-two-three. All you need are styro balls in sizes of your preference; glue; ribbon; and plenty of small round sequins in many colours  If you don't like the white background colour of the styro balls, you can paint them with acrylic paint or even spray paint them gold or silver. Once the paint dries, tie a ribbon around the ball so you can easily hang it from your Christmas tree or anywhere you want to place it. You can cover the ball with glue all at once or stick the sequins one by one. You can place a stick in the middle of the ball so your hands won't be able to touch the glue as you fill it with sequins. Start gluing one colour of sequins all around the ball. For a customized appeal, you can form the name of a loved one using another colour of sequins to make it more personal. Continue reading
