Planning a Halloween Party? Decorating for Autumn?
I love using ping pong balls to transform any set of Christmas lights into the perfect accent for a party. This time of year, ORANGE is the perfect color.
Here are quick and easy instructions:
1. Assemble your materials
- A string of yellow or orange mini lights for Autumn
- Ping pong balls – Available at your local big box store or Amazon.
- A sharp knife or a drill driver with a 5/16″ drill bit
2. Drill a hole in each ping pong ball or cut a hole big enough to allow you to install a mini light
3. Pop those ping pong balls onto each light.
4. Hang them up and have fun!
Here is our video showing how easy this project really is.
