6)  The Marshmallow Ornament looks great if you attach the sequins in random order.  Try not to put the same colors next to each other.  Takes about 1 hour per ornament.

    Please do not make one of these if there is ever a remote possibility a pet may eat it. It can end in tragedy. Personal experience.
