They’re Not Just for Christmas!

Sparkle balls are popular handmade holiday ornaments, but really, you can make and hang these globes of light at any time and just about anywhere.

The supplies are basic: 50 soft plastic cups, a drill, a 1/2″ drill bit, stapler, and a string of 50-100 LED lights. They have to be LED because these don’t heat up, so your plastic cups won’t melt.

Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to put one together more quickly. You can create endless variations by using different colored lights, colored cups, or dipping the cups in glue and adding glitter. You can also vary the shapes. You’ll find some fun sparkle ball ideas here.

Some sparkle ball creators useĀ a hole punch and zip ties or a soldering iron to attach the cups. But we like the ease and simplicity of a stapler.

We love to hear from you! Feel free to post your own creations below.
