DIY Christmas Lights

Gather These Supplies

  • Mod Podge Matte or Gloss
  • White ping pong balls – 24
  • Christmas lights – one strand of white, 24 bulbs
  • X-Acto knife
  • White glitter – large flake
  • Paintbrush

Start by taking the X-Acto knife and making a small hole in each ping pong ball. Smaller is better, as the ball will need to fit snugly over the lights later.

Give each ball a generous coating of Mod Podge. I’ve got a tip for you to make this way easier on yourself!

Either use large plastic tweezers like you see above (you can find them in a craft section). Another thing I do is put “my balls” on a wooden skewer to paint, then I stick that into a block of floral foam to dry. It’s so handy.

Cover each ball in glitter and then allow to dry completely. It may be easier to coat one side, let dry, and then do the other. Do what works best for you. It can take a few hours for the balls to dry depending on the environment.
