This is hanging in my dining room. It looks amazing when the sun shines, shooting bursts of light all around my the room. It makes the whole world sparkle. It is definitely the show stopper in our apartment and I have had quite a number of requests to make more of them. Although it is kind of a dream of mine to become known as the Michelangelo of sequins, I don't have the time to make another one just yet. Instead, I thought I would share a little "how to" insight so you can make it yourself.
It was originally made to be used in a photo shoot and it was quite an ambitious undertaking. We used approximately 10,000 pins and sequins. It took nearly 36 hours of work time with a revolving team of people participating. However, don't let that scare you. It's super simple to make, the hardest part is planning your design and grid ahead of time. After that it's surprisingly soothing to zen out and stick sequins into a board. This is my first (of hopefully many) DIY posts, so please feel free to ask questions and/or leave a comment with suggestions.
