How to Make a “Stained Glass” Sparkleball

adella3For a “stained glass” sparkleball, you’ll need materials for the Original Sparkleball (or a Sparkleball Kit) plus some permanent color markers. (I like Sharpies.)  Next,  find an artist.  Mine was 11 year old Adella, who was willing to color 50 plastic cups with the markers and with a little help from cousin Anna, brother and sister Russell and Gigi.  The results are stunning.  Alone, each cup is a little work of art.  A starry night, ocean wave, flowers, funny faces.  Put together, the cups become like stained glass with colors as vivid in sunlight as they are lit up at night. It’s a stunning sparkleball and memorable keepsake.

 

Big thank you to Adella and crew :)
