Holiday Light Globe Hack

3 Materials
1 Hour

We created this holiday light globe hack with wire baskets from the garden shed, ($5 at Home Depot!) some floral wire, and white mini lights. Make sure if you’re putting this globe outdoors that you buy lights approved for outdoor use. Here is a brief tutorial. For more details, get the complete step by step tutorial on our blog.

So this is really simple.

1. Wire two wire hanging baskets together to make a globe shape. We used floral wire as shown below.

2. Wrap the globe with white lights. We did a little wire tie every 12 inches or so, just to make sure it all stayed in place. Use your own judgement, you may not need them at all! We used 2, 100 light strings.

We hung ours off the eaves of the house, but we think they would look cool laying in the garden as giant “Snowballs” too…. Different sizes? You could have fun with this! Line the front walk with glowing globes?
