decorative sequin balls
skip the traditional "adding a seed bead" before threading your pin through both the bead + the sequin.
it will save you a lot of time. and a lot of patience.
notes: i have had my sequin balls for many years and no pins have fallen out. ever. i wrap them in old tissue paper and tuck them into the holiday decoration box and they fair just fine.
you can make a collection of these in an evening when you eliminate that tiny step of trying to thread the bead onto the pin as well---it also makes your sequin balls much lighter if you are hanging them.
