Backyard Light Ball

Backyard Light Ball

Light up the outdoors with this easy and decorative dangler! Hang it from a tree or post as an added touch for your next backyard picnic or barbecue.

You'll Need:

  • 50 -- 9-oz. Solo® Clear Plastic Cups
  • 2 -- 50-count Indoor/Outdoor Mini Lights (pick colors to match your party theme)
  • 5/16" Staples
  • Ribbon
Instructions:
  1. Slowly drill a 3/8-inch hole in the center of the bottom of each Solo® cup.
  2. Lay 12 Solo® cups side by side, forming a ring. Where 2 cup sides touch, staple together near rim.
  3. Place 9 Solo® cups on their sides on top of the first layer. Staple each cup to the cup next to it and under it, remembering to staple near rim.
  4. Add 4 more Solo® cups to complete 1/2 of the Backyard Light Ball.
  5. Repeat steps 1-4 to make the other 1/2 of the Backyard Light Ball. (Do not attach halves together yet.)
  6. Install lights by pushing 2 lights through each of the cups. Cups may crack (this is ok). Connect the light sets from each ball half.
  7. Place halves together and staple contacting cups near rim. Leave the plug hanging out.
  8. Close gaps in the ball by adding more staples.
  9. For hanging, make a loop with a wire or ribbon and attach with staples.
