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.


  • 80 white disposable plastic cups
  • stapler
  • 1 series lights (colored)
  • scissors
  • candle and knife or any pointed steel utensil


  1. Start with two plastic cups, staple them together.

  3. Continue adding plastic cups until they create a big circle. Put together both ends and staple to secure.
  4. As the circle is formed, attach another set of cups above it for the next layer. Staple to secure side by side.
  5. Do the same with the next layers until you create a large bowl like shape. It should look like half a sphere.
  6. Get a piece of pointed steel and heat it over the fire. Now, press it unto the center of the bottom of each cup to create holes.

  8. When the holes are done, insert the series lights one by one on each hole. Test.
  9. Hang it on your ceiling and switch on to enjoy watching the lights blink and the colors change.
