Easy DIY making Glowing Outdoor Ornaments. Using supplies from Dollar Tree

DIY Glowing Outdoor Ornaments how to video.

First item needed at Dollar Tree for this craft, is a kids bouncing ball. (More colors available)

The second item needed is LED Hanging Lamp

I suggest putting the ball in a bowl to keep the ball steady while your working with it. Make sure the UPC scan is on top

Once you have the ball steady, remove the bulb from the LED hanging lamp to get access to the fairly lights

Form the fairy lights into a circle, make sure the lights don’t go passed the edge of the lamp.

After forming the fairy lights in a circle. Grab your E6000 glue.

Put some E6000 in a small circle on top of the UPC Scan and wording.

Add some E6000 on the inside of the LED hanging lamp. I suggest putting it on the inner circle where the bulb was hanging at.

I also suggest putting a few blobs of E6000 on the outside circle, under the lights.

Place the LED hanging lamp onto the E6000 circle of that’s on the bouncing ball.

*E6000 takes 24 hours to dry. I suggest balancing something with a little weight to it on top of the LED lamp to help E6000 dry as well as helping the LED hanging lamp and bouncing ball attach to one another.

Once dry, they’re ready for display!

Here is how they look during the day!

This is how they look at night with the LED hanging lamp turned on.
