How to make a sequin napkin wrap

Welcome brunch or dinner guests to the table with eye-catching napkin wraps. The sparkle of sequins is a nice contrast to the simplicity of gingham fabric. Fabric napkins are very easy make – just hem the four sides of a square or rectangle. Making them means you can complement any decor.
You also may use any sequin color. If you're planning a Halloween party, choose black napkins and orange or green sequins. For Valentine's Day, try red fabric and white sequins, and for St. Patrick's Day, pair green napkins with gold sequins.

Instructions
1. Place a dab of glue on the ball. Press the first sequin on the spool into the glue.
2. Apply a small line of glue clockwise around the first sequin and press the ribbon into the glue in a clockwise direction around the first sequin.
3. Continue to glue and press clockwise, slightly overlapping the sequins, until all but a small area of the ball is covered. Do not cut off the ribbon. Press the scissor tip into the ball in the exposed area to create a small hole.
4. Tie a knot at the end of the twine. Apply glue to the hole and press the knot into it.
5. Finish gluing and wrapping the sequins around the hole to cover it. Cut the ribbon and glue down the few remaining sequins.
6. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 to create another sequined ball.
7. Measure and cut the twine at 12 inches past the first ball. Tie a knot at the end of the twine. Apply glue to the hole and press the knot into it.
8. Roll up the napkin so it looks like a tube. Wrap the twine around the cloth so both balls are on the front. Slide one of the balls under and through the wrapped twine to secure them in place. Place the napkin on the table.
