I know alot of people have seen sequin ornaments made by pinning a bead and sequin in place.  For many years my grandmother has been making works of art in sequins and beads, but instead of pinning them she sews them one by one with monofilament thread onto a styrofoam ball covered in tulle.  I have recently decided to pick this up again (she taught me 7 or so years ago) and made a few last year.  So far this year I have finished one and almost finished another. They take forever, but of I can make them half as pretty as my mamaw one day it will be worth it!  This is the first time I have posted anything I have made!

They're great, I love the silver one.  I would hang those in my house all year round!

I can see why they take so long to make but they are very pretty!
