Old Glitter Ornament Tutorial

This is my old video about making glitter and sequin ornaments. The video quality is poor but the information is still good.


I get so many questions about making glitter glue/paint that I dedicated a full page to the topic. Visit the Glitter Glue/Glitter Paint Page for more about glittering your ornaments.

Sequins and Seed Beads:

It’s important to use a seed bead when you are pinning sequins to your ornament if the head of your pins are smaller than the hole in the sequin. The bead prevents the sequin from falling off the end of the pin and also it gives texture to your ornament. If the head of your pins are larger than the hole in your sequins then you don’t have to use a bead.

It is also important to use glue on the end of the pins before pushing them into the foam. The glue helps prevent the pins from coming loose and falling out.
