    Gold Sequin-Wrapped Ornaments:
    Step A: Cut a strip of sequin trim that will fit all the way around a foam ball and pin in place to divide the foam ball in half.
    Step B: Cut a second piece of trim to fit around the foam ball in the opposite direction, dividing it in quarters.
    Step C: Pin lengths of trim to fill in each of the four bare sections on the ball.
    Step D: Tuck the cut edges under the previously pinned trim to hide.

    Silver-Glittered Ornaments:
    Step A: Paint a foam ball with a thick coat of Silver acrylic paint. While the foam ball is still wet, completely cover with glitter and let dry.
    Step B: Brush a thick coat of decoupage over the glitter. This prevents the glitter from flaking off.

    All Ornaments:
    Cut a piece of ribbon that is long enough to create a hanger for your ornament. Tie a bow and hot glue the ribbon to the ornament. Trim any excess.
