Sequin Balls

I wish I could find a good place in the house for these. They’re too awesome to live in plastic bags in the basement.

    wow, those are fabulous… did you make them? i’m imagining that they are some kind of styrafoam ball with a bead and sequin disc attached with pin or glue? but they look better than that so do tell… i’m dreaming of them in turquoise and chocolate brown for my living room….

    I bought them at Pier 1 a few years ago. I bet they wouldn’t be that hard to make though! You can use sequins on string (like ribbon) to make them easier to wrap around a ball…

    I like the balls, but what I have noticed in the picture thought is those red “flower” like things in the white vase. I love them! Did you make them? And if yes, how? Could you please send me a clue? Maybe a more detailed photo?

    Love the balls. What about over the door – like mistletoe? What is in that vase? So lovely, vibrant, and fun!

    I think they would be fun in a baby’s room – babies like sparkly shiny stuff to look at, right?

    (And thanks for noticing my little houses! It always gives you a nice, happy feeling when cool people like what you do.)

    Are those from Pier One? I used to work there and we sold some just like those a few years back. We always sold out quickly. I still love them. Bring them back out this year and make a bold statement anywhere in the house!

    Stephanie, your little houses are amazing! I love them.

    Katerina, those were from Pier 1 as well. Here’s a detail shot:

    Those are eye catching. I think they will look good in hallways or entryways. By they way, I stumbled on your site from Apartment therapy, love the ideas.

    Is it weird to tell you that I love your balls. Doesn’t sound quite right…but I do. And your blog. I left you a really cheesy award over at my blog…just to let you know that you rock.

    Wow, I just love those. I can see doing that quickly with paillettes with holes and pins.

    Thank you so much for posting this. You gave me such inspiration for my Holiday decor. I wasn’t even going to put anything up this year, but I am going to try to DIY these. If the sequin strips are too expensive, I may just use tons and tons of glitter and spray adhesive.

    Thanks again, I love this blog so much!

    I agree with hanging them in the new baby girl room. My little guy loves things that sparkle. You could put them over your dresser/changing table to give her something to look at (and bat when she gets older).

    A friend has had some similar in silver hanging over her son’s crib (now bed) since he was an infant. I guess you could call it her mobile. How about hanging them over baby’s crib?
