I made a New Year’s Ball using water bottle caps. Yes, I realize that sounds a little crazy. We drink a lot of water around here so I had plenty of lids. I sprinkled some gold glitter in a paper plate and drizzled some glue to the rims of the caps. Then, I just dipped them into the glitter.
I covered a small styrofoam ball with aluminum foil and hot glued that to a dollar store candlestick. I then hot glued all of my caps to the ball.
If I wanted to make it drop, instead of attaching it to the candlestick, I could have attached a string and hung it. But I wanted it to sit on my mantel. I think it fits.
You could make an even bigger one using clear plastic cups but mine is mini. I like things that are mini- they’re cute. What are your New Year’s plans? I’m sure mine will be spent at home with the ones I love- there’s no place else I’d rather be.
