I bought some supplies to try this out at my local Joanns. The only sequin pins they had were 1/2" in a box of 350 for $2.59. And only one size of smooth balls, and a very limited selection of sequins. But it's a starting point!
Same here! I grabbed my supplies at JoAnn's.. no sequin pins, but the lady said she just used regular pins.. anyway I ran out of sequins half way thru Roll Eyes So I have to go back and get more to finish this one ornament. I think I'll make more too as last minute gifts.. they're just so darn cute! Thanks for the idea!!!!!

Thank you!

I'm glad I could give others the creative spark.  I'd love to see any finished ornaments you guys make!!

I got some more ribbon and am going to try a couple more designs.  I'll post when I'm finished too.

Your ornament is looking good so far.  It looks like you are putting the sequins on so the edges stick up.  That is an interesting look.  I may have to try that too.  I did all of mine so they were contouring to the styrofoam.

I also have seen people make these and put a seed bead on the pin first before sticking the sequin down so it is kind of spiny all over.  I may try that too.

These are beautiful.  I had starting making this with my students, and had some left over sequins and pins in my classroom.  I started making one myself, and picked up a trick:  Don't have lotion on your hands while picking up sequins!  I'm going to have to pull out what I've done because I don't like how cloudy they looks with my fingerprints.

Here's mine! It's going to be a present for my manager... undeserving that he is  Grin Tongue Apparently his daughter took all the xmas ornaments when she moved out... so here's something to start him off again:



and a view of it on a (fake) tree:



you can't see the detail too well, but there is gold ribbon in the middle, gold diamonds in the red base, and a 'wreath' of green on each end, centered by more red.

I think yours is beautiful!!  I know your manager will love it!
It looks like you've got it pretty down pat.

I've had people at my work asking me for days now how I did it and what I used so they could recreate them also.  We've found a gem.

I knew a woman who made ornaments like those, but instead of styrofoam balls she used actual christmas ornaments that were made of styrofoam. Like it was a styrofoam ball wrapped in a colored thread, I haven't seen them in years. But yeah, she used those so that she didn't have to cover the whole thing in and some color could show through.
