I was directed to your site when I googled styrofoam disco balls. I'm having a retirement party for my husband with an oldies theme. I need to make centerpieces for 6 foot round tables and thought that I might incorporate styrofoam based disco balls into the centerpiece. How would I create these balls?
I would just get pieces of mirror tile and cut them into small squares. I would probably cut them into about 1/2' squares and starting in the middle and working your way to the top and bottom hot glue them onto the styrofoam ball.
I totally believe in saving money and being frugal, but you might be better off, finding them on ebay used. I think making them will be extremely time consuming... Just a thought.
You can easily make these. Use clear 16 oz. plastic drinking cups. Put a hole in the bottom of each cup and insert the bulb of a string of colored Christmas lights . Do this with each cup. Using the large heavy duty paper clips clip the cups together at the sides. Keep clipping cups together until you have formed a big ball shape, the end of the Christmas light strand can then be used to hang your new "diso ball".
