So the holidays are quickly approaching and we know that every November a guy will have to put up some sort of holiday lights. As sure as Lindsay Lohan will get into trouble with the law, guys will need to put up lights around holiday time. This is where you have a choice to make though. Do you go with the twinkling little lights, the over-priced LED lights, or phone it in with a few white lights draped across the bushes?
Or do you say forget that and I will create my own lights and make them stand out and be better than everybody else’s in the neighborhood (yeah, take that Roger!)? Go with the very cool, very easy DIY holiday project of creating Ping Pong Ball outdoor lights. It is a really cool twist to the standard every day outdoor lights we see and they are actually pretty cheap to do. And if you make sure to take on this project when your significant other isn’t around, you could probably play it off like this was a really difficult project to accomplish. Be careful with the use of the hot glue because some of those lights can go out which could create a big headache.
We recommend playing around a little bit with this project and maybe do some experimenting with different bulbs and colors. Our priceless information we could provide to you is take one of your test ping pong balls up to Wal-Mart or Target with you and just start slapping them on all of the test bulbs in the store. You’ll get an idea of what each looks like and won’t be disappointed with this DIY gadget while making yourself feel like a real guy. Somewhere Tim the Tool Man Taylor is grinning.
