DIY: Sequin Cocktail Glass Collars

DIY Sequin Cocktail Glass Collars

Looking for some sparkle to add to your holiday parties? Check out this fun DIY for your cocktails from our DIY contributor Christy of One Handspun Day!

I don’t know about you, but I’m a ‘set my drink down while I chat and graze on yummies’ kind of gal and rather unfortunately a ‘forgot which of these five glasses is mine’ kind of gal. This year I am trying to avoid the latter, so I give to you these fun sequin cocktail glass collars to ring in the New Year with!

DIY Cocktail Collar - Materials

• ¼” Single Strand Sequin Trim
• Jewelry Hoops (approximately 1.5” in diameter)
• Hot Glue Gun
• Pliers


Step One: Bend the hoop
Use your pliers to bend the end (non loop side) of your hoop at a 90 degree angle. You should be able to gently push it through the center of the loop on the other side to create a clasp that holds the hoop closed.


Step Two: Align the sequins to the hoop
Next you want to place your sequin trim face down in front of you. Place the hoop on top and align the string of the sequin strand with the outer curve of the hoop. Use your hot glue gun to secure the strand to hoop, but leave an opening (approx. ½”) at the side with the clasp. Tip: glue generously and it helps to press the glue with your finger before it dries to flatten it out and make it spread more (wait a couple of seconds first so you don’t burn your finger!). This gives your collar a backing that holds everything together more strongly.


Step Three: Glue the sequins to the hoop
After you finish gluing the first row to the hoop, make a ‘u-turn’ with your strand to create the second row of sequins. The second row should be placed on top of the first row with the edges of the sequins aligned snuggly against the string of the first row. Glue to keep the second row in place and repeat for the third row.

Don’t forget to switch up the color combinations so that each of your guests has a different ‘collar’ to help them remember which drink is theirs! Enjoy and happy holidays lovelies!
