Hi everyone! Do you have a window in your house that gets a lot of sun? I have one in my dining room. Actually it is a bay window.
Now I didn’t go all out on this on this, just simple, but so pretty. I have some Christmas balls that sparkle so much. They are made of gold glass like mosaic covering the whole ball. Now if you don’t have any balls that sparkle, you can add sequins, mirrors, or anything that sparkles in the sun.
This idea is so beautiful! When the sun hits those balls, it sends out small circles of sparkle all over the dining room! It is so beautiful. Like the 80’s dome ball. I first noticed it on my Christmas tree, sparkling all across the room from them on the tree.
All you need is garland, with or without lights, and the balls. I bought a bunch of sequins on a string. Dollar store! I tied the ends to the ball and to the garland and let them hang down, so the sun would be sure to hit them.
Remember, if you don’t have these kind of balls, you can make them. Dollar store (there I go again) has Styrofoam balls. Just cover the balls with tiny mirrors (from a craft store) or glitter….You can use the metal top hanger from another ball and glue it onto the top of the Styrofoam ball. Then hang it with yarn, sequin on a string (dollar store) and attach to garland. This is what it looks like…It’s not that great of a pic…but you get the idea…
notice the dollar store solar figures…they dance so cute with the sun!
This is what it looks like at night with the lights on….
really simple, understated….but you can see in this pic how the Christmas balls make the rooms ceiling and walls sparkle. It looks magical…I’m all for setting a scene..and sparkle!
Do you see the reflections the sun makes when it hits the balls…love it!
