What’s Hanging Now – April


20160325_133330 1Spring is a colorful and joyous time. For April, I wanted bright colored sparkleballs, since my dry California yard doesn’t have much springtime bloom
.

I bought cans of spraypaint in flowery shades of pink, yellow, green and blue.Pink Sparkleball  I made four Original Sparkleballs. Before adding lights, I spray-painted the centers of the halves.  Just the center.  (see photo)  Some paint drifted to the sides of the cups, and there were some loose spatters.  All good. But I left  plenty of clear plastic for Yellow Sparkleballsparkle.  I added colored lights, but I think  clear or multi’s would have worked fine.  Voila!  A sparkleball bouquet of color!  Even when they’re not lit.
