Sequin Christmas Baubles

"Less is more" is a saying I firmly believe in...unless it involves lights and sparkles on a Christmas tree.  I like our tree to have bling and these quick and simple decorations are a fantastic cheap way of adding shine to the holidays.


Polystyrene Balls (purchased from craft shop)
Sewing Pins


Using sequin curved side facing down, push pin through centre of sequin into the polystyrene ball.  Continue to cover the ball with sequins, ensuring that they overlap, until ball is completely covered.  Tie ribbon in a bow and attach using a pin.

It really is that simple and these shiny little baubles will refelct the lights from the tree to every corner of your room.

Happy Holidays


Thanks so much for visiting.  We'd love to have you join us on Facebook too.
