Crafty Critterz: Sparkly Ornaments

This super simple ornament comes from our archives!

What you need:

  • Small or medium-sized foam balls
  • Small straight pins
  • Sequins (small or medium sized)

What you do:

  1. Push the straight pins through the hole in the sequin.
  2. Push the pin into the foam ball.
  3. Continue adding pins and sequins all over the foam ball until it’s completely covered.
  4. Stick an ornament hanger into the foam ball if you want to hang it up.
  5. Otherwise, arrange the glittery ornaments in a bowl for all to admire!
This craft is good for older kids and grown ups!

Do you have a great idea for a craft, recipe or party game? We’d love to hear them!

    Ah, cute! If I recall correctly, I made one of these when I was younger (kinda strange that younger me was fiddling with pins, but hey, I don’t think so hurt myself XD).

    These are very pretty, I do not have foam balls or sequences, but I think I might use things I have to make unique ornaments. I have this bucket of things I can reuse, and bunch of random stuff. So when I want to make something, I have random inspiration and stuff to make it out of. ( it is always being filled and used.)

    Hmm…I like the look of these, but I don’t use Styrofoam (kind of a “thing” with me, lol). What would make a good substitute for the foam? I suppose I could make a ball out of fabric and then sew the decorations on, but that’s a lot more complicated. Hmm. Any suggestions?
