Sequin walls are getting more and more popular these days, and they don’t seem to be going out of fashion anytime soon. Today I’ll walk you through what you’re going to need to create a spectacular DIY sequin backdrop, as well as how to put it all together!
What is a sequin wall?
A sequin wall- (or Shimmerwall!) is a backdrop made of sparkling sequins. They are really popular for all kind of visual merchandising or event displays, and have been used by some of the biggest brands to make their products stand out from the crowd. They are also great for small to medium sized events such as weddings, parties, baby showers and photo backdrops. They come in all sorts of colours, so you can definitely find a shade to suit your theme.
What will I need?
Firstly, you’re going to need some sequin panels. Shimmerwalls.com is going to be your best bet for this. We are the largest supplier of sequin wall panels in the world for a reason! Our products use the highest quality ABS plastic; we have over 400 colours and finishes in stock; and we have the cheapest prices!
Now, you’re going to need to pick which type of panel will suit your project the best:
Our Standard Sequin Panels are great for one-colour sequin walls or very simple designs.
They measure just under 25cm x 25cm (9¾”), so four of them in a row would make a meter. These panels use 30mm (1⅜”) diameter sequins which are the most cost-effective option if you want a single colour, pattern, or simple design on your Shimmerwall. These panels can be mounted on a wall or backing board.
The Shimmerwalls Micro Sequin Panels are your best bet if you want to display a really intricate image on your sequin backdrop.
They are the same size as the Standard Sequin Panels (25cm x 25cm (9¾”)) however they are populated with much smaller 15mm (5/8”) micro sequins. This means your sequin wall graphic can be four times more detailed, so if you’ve got a photograph or logo, pick this! These panels can be mounted on a wall or backing board.
ShimmerClick panels are a new and innovative product launched by Shimmerwalls to provide a more accessible and easier to use sequin panel product for the small to medium sized events industry. ShimmerClick panels measure 33.3 x 33.3 cm (1’ 1⅛”) so 3 of them in a row would make a meter. These sequin panels use a grid shape, making it 60% lighter than anything else, and are populated with 121 standard size sequins.
ShimmerClick panels can be mounted on a pipe and drape frame, hang from the ceiling, or can be screwed into a wall/ backing board. They are also the cheapest option!
