I just thought I would start off by saying how sorry I am for making you wait so long for this DIY craft! I have been so busy lately, but that is NO excuse!!! I know that you wait by your computer every day for my next blog~~~ And at 11:00 p.m. tonight I am prying my eyes open with Doritos just for YOU~~~
This craft is really easy and really fun. You can give these as gifts or you can make them for yourself (not at all saying that would make you selfish, to keep them ALL to yourself because they are that cute). You could give them to others for Christmas each year and start a nice little tradition ( or you can keep them ALL to yourself
~ Styrofoam Balls
~Hooks (to hang them with)
~thanks P for being my hand model
First thing you will do is arrange your sequins on the strait pin according to your taste. I decided to use red, green and gold!
I figured I would do the original Christmas colors, or at-least what makes me feel all warm and cozy inside~
After you attach your sequins, you will gently stick it into the styrofoam ball.
Remember, you do NOT have to stick them into the ball in a certain order, unless you want to.
When the ball is finished you will get out your hooks and stick it where you want. You might have to remove ONE sequined pin to give the hook it’s own special home!
See BELOW…I wish I had an arrow to put here…
You can either screw it in or just push it in, either way works. You just want to remember to be gentle because if you put it in the ball and you take it out to redo it, it will not stay. So I guess what I am saying is you have ONE and only ONE try with this.. or your gonna melt when you go into the sun….:)
See just how beautiful these little balls of fire are!!! I personally would LOVE to get some like this for Christmas! Wouldn’t you?!?!?!?!
(Maybe I will keep just this one)
You can also add other things that interest you. I LOVE gold!! I think it has never gone out of style and while others HATE it, I sport it~~~
As you can see below, I used some gold tacks to put the letter “j” in my ball.
I wanted to add this one in here to show you that you can also use JUST glitter if you want.
First thing you will do is spray the entire ball with spray adhesive.
Then just sprinkle whatever color glitter you like. I used baby blue and brown. When I was done I added a little splash by sticking pins with a yellow tip in it.
So are you already in your car going get your ingredients!!! I can’t wait to see what you create:)
