Sequin Topairy

For my second milk tin project, I wanted to try a Topairy.
Topairy has been on my list of want to try for awhile.

I had used sequins in my other milk tin project, and since I had the sequin storage tote out, I decided to use more of my stash.  I selected these larger floral sequins and starting attaching them to a 3 inch styrofoam ball using 3D Crystal Lacquer (so if there was a space between them, it would be covered with the lacquer).

For the milk tin, I cut one of the styrofoam in half and formed it to find in the top part of the milk tin.  I covered the styrofoam with some dyed fibres I had received from a friend.
I, then, used double sided adhesive to add the rows of ribbons (vintage Stampin' Up) around the bottom of the milk tin.
Once the sequins were completely dry, I wrapped the stick part with fibres, and forced it into the styrofoam inside the milk tin.  I added the corrugated fence after it sat on my shelf for a couple days and I thought it needed more.
