DIY Sequence Trees

Hey hey! I am super excited this post because it is my (and Shardi's) VERY OWN IDEA!! We were shopping at Pier 1 and saw these awesome sequence Christmas trees. We thought they were a-mazing...until we saw the price tag. Oh wow, they were expensive! Who has that kind of money to blow on a Christmas decoration piece that you use for one month a year?! Plus, you, of course, need more than one!! It was then that we decided we would try and make one!! We went to our local Hobby Lobby and picked up a few bags of sequins, some pins, and some styrofoam Christmas trees. We then got to crafting!  These trees aren't the quickest craft in the world, but they are definitely beautiful! They make a great decoration piece and gift! I gave them to my whole family last year for Christmas. Everyone loved this awesome homemade gift! I did colors that would match their living rooms or bedrooms. Here's a tutorial on how to make your very own sequins Christmas tree and pictures of some I have made. Let me know what you think!!!

DIY SequinsTrees

What you need:

Sequins (small & large)

Small Pins

Styrofoam tree 

An organizer box (Optional)


 Pick your colors for your tree & buy your sequence. Get BIG and small sequence. You can use any variety of colors you would like. Make sure to get a couple different colors in both sizes, unless you want your tree one color, which is fine!!

 Put a small sequence on a pin and then stick the big sequence through the pin after it. I didn't use the hole for the big sequins, because I felt it was too close to the edge. I just poked it in a little further. It should look like this: 



I like to pre-make a bunch of these for the tree, so it goes faster! 


Once you pre-make some, start sticking them in the tree! I found that starting on the bottom and working your way to the top, works the best. 




Go up all the way to the top! If you have any open space, you can fill it in with your small sequins. The top of mine looks like this:

Here is the finished product!!

Here are some more! Send me your pictures!


  1. What a cute idea! I love how it's so unique :) Congrats on figuring this diy out. I wish I had talent to think of my own diy. Sometimes the stores are just ridiculously priced. I love the purple and black one and the silver and gold one! Great job!
