Ok, having difficulty finding sequins, and when I do they're not the color that I want.  Could you tell me where you found the multicolored ones?  The ones you used in the second, fifth and sixth ornaments.    They are so gorgeous and I want to get a jump start for next year. Smiley  Thanks!

Those 'peacocky' looking sequins are actually from Joann's $1 section.  I don't know if all of their stores are set up the same, or similar, but it wasn't the dollar section by the checkout.  It was the dollar section back by the cutting counter.  I think I am going to have to go back and get more because I have only a few left!  Oh...and the package is kind of a multi pack.  There are a couple bigger ones mixed in with them, which you could use for something else. 
Hope this helps.

Thank you thank you!  Went to Joann's today, saw sequins in the dollar section, rifled through them all, and saw none. Sad  Went back to the "clearance" dollar section and they had 3 packages left, marked down to $.50 each.  Grabbed all three of course!  I wish they'd make this sequin color all year long!

Crazy.  I went on Monday hoping there would be some left and was sad to find none...but then I also went to the clearance section and found 3 packages for 50 cents!!!  Awesome!  I'm glad you got some too!

hello,  Beautiful, gorgeous ornaments - is that ribbon in the middle?  I didn't think the smooth foam balls were available at JoAnn's.   catdaddytn

Yeah it is ribbon.  It is some I got cut by the yard because by the spool ribbons usually aren't as detailed.

I have looked at every local craft shop here and Joann is the only place I have found the smooth styrofoam balls.  I have looked at Joann, Hobby Lobby, Michaels and Wisconsin Craft Market.  I hope you can find them locally somewhere by you.

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.

When I was younger and had free time I used blue ornaments like that and made political globes out of sequins. They were a big hit with hippies and geography professors.
