A “Make Your Own Ornament” Party


Ah sequins, so festive. 
I have a group of girlfriends who I have remained close with through the years and we all are living back in the same area again. We go by the “coyotes” – don’t judge I think we made up the name when we were 14ish. We grew up together and have been a group since 6th grade, some of us were even in the same kindergarten class! I am lucky to have them because I know its rare. Once a month, we take turns hosting “Coyote Night” and this past month it was my turn… craft hour and wine… yes please. 



How to host your own Ornament Party:
sequins, sequins, sequins - I got an array of colors and sizes


I also got a variety pack 


You need sequin pins, which are not the same as sewing pins and will be located by the sequins at the craft store. I bought gold and silver, and we were picky about which ones we used, then we realized you couldn’t even tell the difference.


Styrofoam Balls, these came in a 6 pack 

extras: ribbon for the hanging part, foam glue is optional, extra little dishes for each person


There doesn’t have to be any rhyme or reason to the ornament making and that is why it was fun. It is perfect for a girl get together because it it mindless so you can still talk, eat and drink :)


Some of us had a color scheme, some did a pattern, and some were totally random, I love them all!


Progress… it does take a while, thankfully for us we never run out of things to say.

A little later…



I wanted to keep all of them :)


This is the one I made, happy on my tree. 


 Has anyone else had a “make your own ornament party” yet? I think you should.
