How to Make a Sequined Snowflake Garland

Handmade sequined balls and bright cutout snowflakes hung on clear monofilament create a festive holiday party backdrop.

Materials Needed:

  • silver origami paper
  • 3-5 colors origami paper
  • sequin trim in 3-5 coordinating colors
  • small Styrofoam balls
  • multicolored jumbo sequins
  • dressmaker's pins
  • monofilament
  • scissors
  • sewing needle

Create Sequined Balls

Start by creating the sequined balls that will hang on the bottom of the garland. Attach one end of the sequin trim pieces to a Styrofoam ball with a pin. Start wrapping the sequin trim around the Styrofoam ball. Place a dressmaker's pin through a sequin into the ball every few sequins.

Keep wrapping and pinning until the whole ball is covered. Place a final pin at the bottom of the ball and cut off the extra trim.

Tip: You will need one sequined ball for each garland.

Fold the Paper Snowflakes

Fold a sheet of paper into a triangle. Then, fold that triangle into a smaller triangle. Fold each side point into the middle. Cut off the points. You now have a triangle-shaped piece that’s ready to fashion into a snowflake.

Cut the Paper Snowflakes

Cut different shapes from the sides of the folded triangle piece. Tip: Be creative! Like real snowflakes, every one should be a little bit different.

Unfold the snowflake, admire your handiwork and smooth the snowflake to flatten.

String Garland

String a 30-inch piece of monofilament onto the sewing needle. Start with the sequin ball by threading the monofilament through a top section of it. Then, thread on some color sequins and snowflakes in a random pattern. Tip: Keep a few inches of monofilament between each decoration, it will help the garland look more natural when you’re done.

Leave 5 inches of monofilament at the end of the garland for hanging.

Hang Garlands

Hang a group of garlands along a wall or in front of a window to bring modern holiday cheer into your home.
