I love Halloween. I love everything about it from the fun decorations to the trick-or-treaters. I dress up my dogs and myself every year and pumpkin carving is a tradition that I anxiously await. I start decorating in September because I think one month of Halloween is too short.
As always I like to decorate on a budget. My ghost lights cost me a whopping $6 as I had everything but the ping pong balls.
What you need:
- string lights
- Ping pong balls
- Drill bits
1. Using a small drill bit, poke a hole in a ping pong ball. Gradually increase the size of the hole using larger drill bits until it fits snugly around a light. Don’t worry if the ball dents in, you can fix it with a small drill bit or a pen.
2. Place ping pong ball over lights. At first I covered every light (shown below) but soon found it works better if you cover every other.
Volia! You’re done! Quick and easy! I found bags of 50 ping pong balls for $6 on Amazon and prime shipping. As I said the rest I already had. It has a nice ambient glow to my porch and when Halloween is over, I can easily store the lights until next year!
Happy Hauntings! I’ll have more Halloween crafts coming soon!
