How to Make New Year’s Sparkle

Just one sparkleball will add chic to your New Year’s party, whether fancy or football. Everybody will want to know how you made this amazing ball of light thing.  And you’ll say,  well, it’s just Solo cups and Christmas lights :) If you can bear it, race to Walmart or Target or CVS to buy your lights half-price.  (Walmart also has Solo cups.)  Think of using battery-powered lights, then you can make a sparkleball centerpiece for the table.  Don’t forget the stapler or soldering iron.  Or order a sparkleball kit!

  1. I would stay away from the Walmart LED lights. I bought a bunch only to find the blue ones (and any color that has blue in it) burn out early. So I have all these multi strands that I won’t use because they just don’t last. And I even ordered some of the 225 light sets ($20 a strand on sale) and have had problems with them, no matter the color.
    The warm and cool white and the red were OK (50 light strands). The blue were worse than terrible.
