Add extra glow and beauty to your Christmas tree this year with this easy dollar store ping pong ball hack!
I was cruising the aisles of Dollar Tree recently and noticed these ping pong balls in the toy aisle. I grabbed a few packs and brought them home to experiment with. Guess what? They make the most amazing addition to my Christmas tree!
I simply cut a hole in one side of the balls with an exacto knife, slipped the ping pong ball over a Christmas light bulb and viola! A new glowing addition to my Christmas tree.
If you want to purchase the ping pong balls in bulk, you can order them on Dollar Tree’s website. If 24 packs is just too many for you, stop by your local Dollar Tree instead.
You can also buy ping pong balls in bulk on Amazon. They even have colored ping pong balls!
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS ONLY SAFE TO DO ON LED LIGHTS. Old-fashioned lights get too hot and could pose a fire hazard. The newer LED lights don’t get hot like the old ones do, so they are much safer for this project. Proceed at your own risk and use common sense please.
Watch this video to see just how easy it is to make your own glowing orbs.
I can’t believe how pretty they look and how much extra glow they give my tree. And it was so cheap easy to do!
These photos are just a sneak peek of the full Christmas tree reveal and I can’t wait to show you how cute the tree turned out this year.

Such a cute idea!! I'm definitely going to try it this year.
Do they get too hot in there? I’m worried about a fire hazard.
I used LED bulbs so they don’t get hot. I wouldn’t recommend doing this with regular bulbs just to be safe.
