Black Beauty

 

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.

Sabel’s Darkelball would be a perfect Halloween sparkleball.  The interior, which looks like  an LSD-crazed spiderweb, is made of microwaved dvd’s.  Melted plastic, purple lights.  Spooky!
