Supplies to make your own sequin monogram letter

Directions:

Step 1:

We want to start by covering up the edges of the letter, so 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.

Step 2:

With hot glue, adhere the strands of your pre-cut elastic to any edging of the perimeter of your paper mache letter.

Step 3:

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 the letter. 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.

Step 4:

As you get to a new edge of your letter, you may need to start wrapping the cording in the opposite direction (depending on your letter of choice).

Step 5:

We wrapped our sequins vertically along the outer edge of our letter E to save on time and to give it a smoother look.

    Where did you find the letter. I went to my local craft store(michaels) and they didn't have larger ones. Any suggestions?
