Create a Sparkling Sparkle Balls out of Plastic Cups

Lighting up your life with sparkling lights needs not to be expensive and dangerous to our mother nature. The Sparkle ball will make you life happier. Creating a sparkle ball is very easy and can be done by kids of all ages. All you have to do is to collect plastic cups, have enough Christmas lights and a zip tie. After collecting those, its now time for you to drill hole at the bottom of each cup and try to connect then one by one, add up the lights and you will already have your wonderful and bright sparkle ball without the need to buy those expensive and hazardous materials used in lighting. I suppose one can use recycle cups in here which is the greenest part of this project.
