PinTest: Ping Pong Ball Pumpkin Lights

Today's PinTest has been one of my favourite so far, and is based on a simple Christmas fairy lights hack that you can see here.
I decided to use this method to create some super cute pumpkin Halloween lights; this is a cheap and relatively quick project and is a great way to add some spooky decor to your home!

All you need to recreate this DIY are some fairy lights, enough ping pong balls to cover the lights (I needed 40), a black sharpie marker and a scalpel.

First, mark a small cross on your ping pong balls with a pencil. Then using a scalpel, very carefully cut through the ping pong ball over the cross. Note: Use some blu tack to hold your ping pong ball in place whilst you are cutting.

Next, take your sharpie marker and get drawing on the opposite side of your ping pong balls to the crosses you have just made. I went for classic pumpkin designs but you could draw anything spooky!

Carefully push your ping pong balls onto your fairy lights through the crosses you made earlier.

Repeat until all of the fairy lights are covered - and you're all done!
