Hard cup sparkleballs require a bit more effort. They take days to make so hotglue can set. The cups crack easily. Drop a hard cup sparkleball, and it’s a disaster. The hard cups are sparklier and come in fun colors. These instructions will work for many 5 oz cups and 9 oz brands. For 9 oz Chinet brand cups the formula is slightly different. (see below)
NOTE: You can also build a Hard Cup Sparkleball with bobby pins (!) or clear silicon caulk.
