Christmas lights are the best. I used to have colored lights all around my bedroom when I was younger. Those same lights hung all around Nick's apartment in college and then in our apartment this past Christmas. I just think they make a room feel warm, cozy, and inviting. We've incorporated Christmas lights in our apartment with our wine bottle lights, but I am always happy to welcome more!
A few months ago I saw this pin about covering Christmas lights with ping pong balls (genius, right?) I thought the colored lights they used were fun, but then I saw this photo from Arroway blog where they used white lights and I'm pretty sure I fell in love. The white lights are just so pretty. We decided to make a set of our own, and let me tell you... this is probably the quickest and easiest project we've ever done.
- String of Christmas lights
- Ping pong balls
- Xacto knife
Here's what you do!
- Using your Xacto knife, carefully cut a small X in a ping pong ball.
We had an extra set of white Christmas lights already on hand, so no money spent there. We bought a gross (144 pack) of ping pong balls on Amazon for $12. That's all we spent. Pretty good, if you ask me. And we still have 44 balls left over for our next match of Quidditch pong. Now that's what I call a win-win.
Hope you're having an unseasonably warm Saturday like we are :)
