Putting Cups in the Cups

Sparkleballs are all about cups.  So let’s shake things up a little and put cups inside, on top of, between, and over the cups. Add a second set of cups, and you’ll  totally change the lighting and the overall look of the ball.  Using hard plastic cups like shotglasses,  you can solder holes in them for the lights, then hotglue them into the solo-style cups.  Or turn them upside down and glue them over the lights.   Soft cups can be treated the same way and even stapled inside Solo cups.  I love Sabel’s “Sporeball,” where tube shots are inserted between the main cups.  Here are some ideas to spur your creativity, but, really, the deal is,  just go for it :)
