Sequin-Wrapped Beads and Foam Balls

Few things can bring a party to life like sparkling decorations, such as these sequin-wrapped baubles. Use wooden beads for jewelry, and Styrofoam balls to accent napkin rings and shoes.

  • Wooden beads or foam balls

  • Strung sequins

  • Tacky white glue


  1. Pull one or two sequins off the thread to create a lead end. Starting at the top of bead (or foam ball), secure lead end with a dab of glue.

  2. Apply glue one section at a time, and adhere sequin strand, spiraling it tightly and applying pressure as you work. Leave bead holes open if you'll be stringing them; otherwise, cover with sequins.
