If your like me, then you love a good disco ball to bring a little sparkle to your life. However, they can be pricy and hard to come by! I managed to pick up a few small disco balls from Party City, but that is all I could find. I didn't want to spend the money to buy + ship one, so I made it!
For Galentines day, my friends over at Part Pail sent me some goodies, and it in were these 2 white paper lanterns. I knew they would be perfect to make me a disco ball! So I ran to Michaels and picked up the silver, foam, glittery sheets with a sticky back, for 99 cents each....AND thats all you need!
Follow the pictures below to see how easy + simple this D.I.Y. is!
First, I cut the foam sheets into about 1/2 inch strips, then cut the strips into about 1/2 squares. I used 4 sheets of sticky foam paper total. Then I got to peelin' and stickin' ! [not gonna lie, this part was tedious]. And viola! you got yo' self a disco ball and for under $10!!!
Also, I made these mini disco balls using Styrofoam balls + glitter + modge-podge. On the bigger disco balls, you probably notice that I covered one of them with the glittery foam squares, then other one I just used modge-podge and glitter.
If I were to start this over, or do it again- I would use a black lantern rather than white. BUT I truthfully like the one I made with glitter the most.
If you gals ever try one of my D.I.Y.'s/art projects OR if you make one of your own that you think I'd love, tag it with the hashtag #iliketoARTYhard and I will feature my most favorite ones on my Instagram feed!
Peace, love + D.I.Y.
