these are ornaments that i make using sequins, sequin pins, beads and styrofoam balls. its the same technique as sequined fruit, but i use pre stranded sequins for all but the double stacked sequin ornament. these are only a few of the ones i have made. i try to experiment with colors and color combinations. my most reacent discovery was adding panty lace which makes the ornament look a little softer looking.




this ornament was made by stacking two sizes of sequins together.



this one is made with panty lace and sequins spiraling around each other.



this one was made with bugle beads instead of seed beads, so it makes it spikey.

thanks for looking!

All your ornaments are Awesome.  I especially love the blue spikey one.  I see you said you use sequins pins, but do you also use any glue or just the pins?

thank you! i just realized how conceited i must sound by calling my own stuff awesome, haha.

i dont use glue at all, the styrofaom holds them in pretty well. i suppose you could, but i havent found a need to. =)

These are terrific!  My mom made several ornaments using beads and pearl head pins many years ago.  My favorite is your spikey blue one.
