diy ornaments

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I had a great time over the long weekend in St. Louis with Mr. Lively and his extended family. Sleeping in, eating well, and recharging was delightful (and much needed). But now that I’m back, I am turning my attention towards decorating my apartment for the holidays.

My first order of business was to make these DIY ornaments inspired by Pugly Pixel’s sequin globes. They were simple to make and were a great craft to make while watching Modern Family.

To see pictures of the process, see Pugly Pixel’s tutorial. But here’s the list of materials:

  • Styrofoam balls(assorted sizes to your liking, mine are 3″ and 4″)
  • Sequins in whatever colors you want (I went for gold, of course)
  • Solid head steel pins (I found mine in gold in the knitting/sewing aisle)
  • Beads and seed beads (I had mine leftover from old Jess LC collections)

Though I haven’t made them to attach to a tree, I think they could be great baubles on a tray or tablescape.

They could also make great gifts as well!

    Jess…I made these several years ago for my formal tree. I did them in all white…pearls and white sequins. Funny how projects come back around…I like your gold and red!
