Normally I shy away from shiny things, but when I saw this Lip Sequin Sweatshirt DIY from A Beautiful Mess, I immediately wanted to buy a million sequins and glue them to everything but my cat…I’m sure he would’t be too happy about that. After trying to figure out what to do, I noticed my gallery wall was looking a little empty and what goes with blue? A yellow banana of course!
Step 1. Draw a banana onto card stock, you can use a template online
Step 2. Starting with the beige sequin trim, glue the trim on the outline of the banana, circling down and back until it’s completely filled in. Cut off the excess trim. I also let it completely dry before starting on the peel.
Step 3. Start on one side of the peel and work around the outline, circling back to fill in the gaps. To make it easier, I cut the trim once each peel was finished. This allowed the peels to keep their shape and not blend together too much.
Step 4. Let dry completely and frame your art! As you can see, I originally used pink card stock, but I didn’t like it with the gold frame. The banana was super easy to cut out and glue to white card stock.
I definitely wouldn’t mind doing this same technique to a purse or even a hat. How cute would a little sequined cactus be?!
