Time to get cracking on those Halloween sparkleballs and costumes. Be on the lookout for orange mini-lights at your drugstore or hardware store. Of course, everything you need can be found online, including Solo Cups and hard plastic orange and black cups.

Last month at New York Maker’s Faire, Rob Stephens displayed his popular programmable RGB/LED sparkleballs,  pixelballs.  But the surprise hit was his sparkleball hat.  So many people asked to try it on, that Rob had to take photos. Mark Mathias was there and with Rob’s help, carried the idea to his church’s youth group, who made pixel and battery-pack sparkleball hats for Halloween.  

Check out Rob’s website and his photo collection of “Sparkle Heads.”  Rob’s also working on easy instructions for programmable LED sparkleballs.

 

 

 

What’s Hanging Now – October


20161003_083058Planning ahead for the sparkleballs I want to hang at Halloween has made the month of October a lot more fun.  This one is made of hard cups I found at the grocery (Party Essentials brand*).  They are solo-shaped but just a bit different, so  I used Carl Boro’s recipe 14-11-6-1.  I put it together with the hot-glue method for Hard Cup Sparkleballs here.  Love how shiny the hard cups are!

*Party City makes similar cups in many colors.
