DIY Sequins Wall Art
Wooweee! Can you say sparkly?! We recently did a crazy ONE DAY makeover on our Craft Studio in Savannah’s house (for the time being) and we have got some crazy awesome tutorials for you guys then we’ll show you the full reveal! It’s just so “us” I can’t even stand it. First up, this DIY Sequins Wall Art sign! With over 2000 sequins that we pinned on by hand, this baby is a showstopper! It is a little time consuming (maybe 3-4 hours) but SO worth it and surprisingly easy!
Materials: (*affiliate links)
- R-tech Foam Insulating Sheathing (say what?) It’s basically rigid insulation from The Home Depot. Check it out here. It was $12 for a 4×8 sheet.
- Gold Spray Paint* (Wouldn’t be a Classy Clutter project without it!)
- Approximately 1200(ish) (40mm) Gold Sequins. We got ours from Hobby Lobby (here). Each pack had about 50 sequins and we had 20-something packs. It was super hard to keep an accurate count but you need 50-60 per square foot, depending on how close together you place them.
- Sequins Pins (1250 or so) We got these from Hobby Lobby (here) too.
- Serrated knife and/or box knife
- Letters for whatever word you choose for the center. We picked INPSIRE because that is our number one goal with Classy Clutter… to inspire someone, somewhere. It seemed fitting for our office space.
- 3M Mounting tape – available here.*
First, cut your foam sheathing to size. Measured our desk and opted to make it a tad smaller so it would sit centered over the desk. Then we cut out the rectangle on the inside to fit the INSPIRE letters. The size for the cut out will depend on your word choice.
Next, spray paint your board and letters using RustOleum gold metallic spray paint (our fave!) Allow to dry. Sorry we didn’t get pics of cutting and spray painting. We did this project in the middle of the night.
Next, lay your sequins out to figure out spacing. You can do it in a grid-like pattern or place them offset (like we did). Once it’s all said and done, it all kind of looks the same because the sequins pick up so much light you can’t really tell.
Use the pins and pin the sequins to the foam board. This is the part where you grab a helper and crank up Taylor Swift and get busy. It is pretty time consuming but it goes by fast since it’s so easy and monotonous.
When you’re done, use a level (or your phone with the level app) to mark where it should go with a pencil. Then, use 3M extreme mounting tape (the heavy duty kind!) and hang it on the wall. Once the sequins frame part is in place, hang the letters. Start with the center letter and work out so the whole word stays center. We used black vinyl to cover edges of the foam but you could even use duct tape or leave it alone. Then, tada!!! You’re done!
This would be SO cool in a girl’s room, bathroom, dressing room, for parties etc! We love it in our office and can’t wait to show you the rest of the studio space!

Love this so much!!!! What a great idea! Easy, cost effective and so chic!!
Awesome job! One question though, where did you get the letters and were they spray painted as well?
The letters are from Hobby Lobby and yes, we spray painted them! Looks like I left that step out! Whoops! Thanks for catching that for me! I’ll add it in!
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Where can I found the white desk?
I would like to know where the desk and chairs are from also. Thanks!
Hi Jennifer! The desk is from Ikea and the chairs are from Amazon. We painted the bases on both gold! 🙂
HI. I was so happy and motivated to do my Inspire board and I went to home depot in Mexico where I live. They have the PINK PANTER board that is for insulate. I cut it thiere and I came to my house to paint it with gold spray. I had a surprise. All the material start to eat away and make holes. It was so disappointing. I don´t know what else I can use as the one that you post they don´t carry here on Mexico. Any idea… I have sequins and letter waiting to do the board… ;(
Oh no!!! I’m so sorry to hear that. I would suggest doing gold acrylic craft paint. You can buy it online. That would work just as well but would take a little longer to do it by hand instead of spray. It would be well worth it though! Good luck! Here’s a link to where you can buy it.
Hi Mallory & Savannah,
I am so happy to have found your website! I bought the supplies to make a sequins (inspire) board and anxious to get started. Can you tell me the width you cut your board to be? I need to exchange my letters at Hobby Lobby for a smaller size. It looks like a good width. Did you buy the letters that are more flat and made of wood or the very light weight ones that are the color of a brown paper bag? The brown ones are thicker and would stick out as raised letters in the middle of the sequins board. Thanks, Kathy
They’re the chipboard ones that are thicker. Not the cardboard/paper mache ones. They’re flatter. Hope that helps!
I love that you have all the details on where to find it and how to do it. I will have to give this a try for my dinning room. You have so many great ideas! Thanks for sharing!!
I love sequins, but i can´t find good glue 🙁
hi! so in love with this! I tried making this board today, but the actual board started crumbling once we cut into the center with the blade. Any tips on how to keep this in tact? Thanks so much!
On the inside square we put duct tape to help keep it from not making a mess and keeping it all together.
Hoping to adapt this design for my daughter’s room, but I can’t locate the R-tech Foam Insulating Sheathing . Do you have an alternative suggestion?
Do you have an alternative suggestion to the Foam Insulating Sheathing? My Home Depot doesn’t carry the suggested product. I really appreciate any help! 🙂
Such a glamourous DIY! I love it!

I like it when people come together and share opinions. Great blog, keep it up!
Hi, I like the golden color used for wall. The wooden touch is also a great choice. The wall with multi-colors is very amazing. You can use some tapestries to decor your wall. I will look more attractive with colorful walls. Excellent DIY designs for home decor.
When I click the link for the Inspire tutorial nothing come up. Can you repost it? Thanks.
Beautiful results! Glad I came across your site! Becoming new follower!
