This is my creation from last year that I have to share with you. I have the cutest little tree out front and I wanted little "fruits" to go in my little tree SO bad! I was NOT going to spend $10 per ball at the store, so I made my own. I grew up with the idea that you can do anything with duct tape and some imagination - SO TRUE!
My little great balls of fire were created by wadding up dozens of plastic grocery bags together (save the earth) in a spherical-form and wrapping them with masking tape. Then I wrapped a string of red lights around each ball and secured it by wrapping a little wire around it. It took some thinking to get them all strung together, but it worked!
