Sequin Christmas Trees

This is one of those projects that is fun and easy to make but also takes some hours to complete. I am in the process of decorating my mantel for Christmas, and these colorful sequins trees are the perfect addition to the holiday decor in my home.

Supplies I used:

  • 2 Floral Foam Cones
  • Sequins
  • Straight pins

The reason this project takes so long is because each sequin is pinned to the cones one at a time.

Warning: You will need several hundred sequins and pins! So prepare yourself before you begin making your trees. I found the packs of sequins and pins at dollar stores. Each pack cost me about $1 each.

The sequins come in multiple colors, and you can arrange them any way you like. I was going for an ombre effect for my trees.

  1. I love these. I remember making them as a child. They do take a long time, but wrapped carefully after Christmas they will last forever.

  2. When I was a little girl my grandmother and I made several ornaments from kits that involved lots and lots of sequins. I remember how much my fingers would hurt from pushing all those pins in, but it was so fun and some of the ormaments are still around. I thought they were the most beautiful ornaments ever!
