Lynn wanted some of these. Pretty and pretty pricey.
I saw an idea on a blog. Sorry, I can't remember which one. I bought a gross (144) of ping pong balls for $11.00 from Amazon.
I used a pointed sharp knife and gently poked a slit in one side. Hubby was sure I would slice a finger off. But, if you are slow and gentle you will be fine. Then i slipped a ball over eac tiny light. I had an extra string of 100 lights because of our short Christmas tree this year.
Fun when lit. Colored lighs might be fun for a birthday party. This little project took me about 20 minutes to create.
For now I placed them in the fireplace. I like them and hubby does too. Now, what to do with an extra 44 ping pong balls?
