I just started decorating for Christmas and thought of making a crystal ball out of clear disposable cups, but then my mom suggested that I should make a big half sphere to create a chandelier. So, I thought of using white cups instead of the clear ones. And here are the results.
That is pretty. But it also looks like a tremendous fire hazard.
I have made sparkleballs, which are similar to this and the lights don't get hot enough to cause a problem. Using newer LED lights would alleviate that concern even more.
The light turned out great!
Very pretty. But I would make sure it doesn't get too hot, the cups don't look very sturdy.
I have made a number of these and used both "old fashioned" Christmas lights and the newer LED lights. The small "old" lights never got hot enough to ignite plastic cups. Also, they do not touch the plastic anywhere.
