Sequins are in, darling, didn’t you know? They are back and big and so delicioulsy awesome. And while sequins are, of course, amazing sewn into all sorts of fabricy goodness, they are also fabulous in crafts, adding a hint of sparkle to just about anything! Individualy or in groups, sequins are such a fun addition to your craft arsenal! Here are a few of our favorite ways to use their sparkly goodness!

Oh Oh! Is it too early to start thinking about holiday wrapping? How cute are these little sequins strung on plain old string? Fun and Fabulous, anyone would love to recieve a gift wrapped like this!

And speaking of holidays, these sequin ornaments are so much fun! They would be a snap to make and would add all sorts of shine and glint to your tree. And how simple to customize them to your color scheme by using sequins in shades that match your decor.

I love this sequin heart piece of art. Just enough glitz to add a bit of shine to a wall or desk while still looking classic and clean. While this version uses multicolored sequins, you could tailor this to your favorite colors and even shapes (maybe a set of initials? Perfect wedding gift!).
