The Story

When mini-lights and plastic cups get made into a sparkleball, magic happens.  The inventor is unknown, but this simple American folk craft has spread around the world.  Nobody owns the rights.  Anyone can make one.

This website has provided free instructions for fifteen years —  based on reader feedback and the author’s experience. The blog goes more in depth with fancy technique and embellishments for your sparkleball. We hope you find what you need here.  Have fun!
