DIY Christmas Ornament 12: Sequins and Lace

What could possibly be more girly than sequins and lace? Not much, but this ornament is more than just girly…dare I say sexy? This one was inspired by a friend who asked me what to do with all those sequins after completing this ornament. It’s true you’ll have a lot leftover and I wasn’t sure what to do with them either.

So one recommendation is to use them in another ornament.

Yes, I think this is a SEXY ornament.

Step 1:

Collect your supplies.

  • Sequins (any color)
  • Clear Ornament
  • Lace
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Piece of paper (to make funnel) or use an actual funnel

Step 2:

Remove ornament cap. Create paper funnel by rolling the piece of paper and securing with a piece of tape.

Using the funnel, fill the ornament with the sequins.

Tip: Use a bottle cap or rubber band to keep the ornament stable while you deal with the sequins.

Step 3:

Replace ornament cap. Cut a piece of lace large enough to wrap around the ornament, overlapping slightly.

Step 4:

Spray one side of the lace with spray adhesive and carefully wrap it around the ornament. Press down all the edges so everything is securely attached to the ornament.

That’s it, easy right?

Tip: Usually I would advise to use whatever glue you have on hand to keep costs down, but in this case, spray adhesive is your best option. Mod podge and tacky glue will work but will show on the ornament. The same with hot glue. If you use spray adhesive the lace will hold well and won’t show any unnecessary residue on the ornament.
