Learn How to Make an Easy Sequin Monogram Letter!
We want to start by covering up the edges of the letter.
Take a strand of your elastic sequin cording and carefully cut pieces to adhere to the edges of your paper mache letter that cannot be wrapped with the elastic.
With your hot glue, adhere the strands of your pre-cut elastic to any edging of the perimeter of your paper mache letter.
Starting at any edge of your paper mache letter, hot glue the end of your cording (starting on the back of your letter) and begin to carefully wrap the sequin band around it.
Be sure as your wrap, there are no gaps between the layers of the cording.
If you have some small gaps, you can easily fill them in with loose sequins.
As you get to a new edge of your letter, you may need to start wrapping the cording in the opposite direction.
Of course, this depends on the letter you are working on.
We wrapped our sequins vertically along the outer edge of our letter ‘E’ to save on time and to give it a smoother look.
Finish wrapping any other areas of your letter.
You should be left with a fully covered letter!
We wanted to add a little extra something to our monogram, so we decided to add a pretty coral-colored silk flower for a fun detail!
Carefully adhere your silk flower with a touch of hot glue.
Congratulations on creating your own beautiful and fun sequin monogram!
It’s suitable for any event or as a unique piece of home decor!
Thank you, Missy and Kristen, for sharing your boundless creativity! I would never have thought to use sequin cording… wonderful idea!
