Fran, my neighbor across the street, always rates my sparkleballs. After all, she has to look at them. The newest one scored an A+. “Black Beauty,” as Fran calls it, is an Original Sparkleball with black cups inserted inside each clear cup. The black cups are Hannah K brand from Amazon. I intended to use them by themselves to make a black sparkleball for Halloween, but the ball didn’t come out right. So I added them to a clear sparkleball. This will work for any cup you can drill or make a hole in. As you add lights, put a black cup inside a clear one and insert lights through both. The Hannah K cups come in lots of cool colors which will be fun for the holidays.
