X-MAS DIY: Christmas lights

Last year I thrifted a BIG bag of plastic balls (ones used in a ball pools in playgrounds). I tried making a garland by attatching the balls to rag yarn with tape, but I was not pleased with the result. Instead I tried making a light garland, and that was a success! Here is the easy tutorial to that project. 

In the end of this post you'll find inspiration to other projects involving a string light series and material you might have at home.

I used:
- ball pool balls
- Christmas string light set
- tape (coloured if you wish)
- utility knife

The tutorial is very easy:
1. Cut a hole in the ball.
2. Stick a light into the hole.
3. Put some tape over the hole to keep the light inside of the ball.


Here are other projects:

All the best for the coming week and happy crafting!

Jättesnyggt! Om jag visste var jag kunde få tag på såna bollar så skulle jag också göra.
