Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball

Most years we get the chance to watch the New York’s Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball drop on TV.  I have been lucky enough to see this ball in Time’s Square and wanted to create our own to celebrate in our home.

For this project I used:

A light up bulb from Dollar Tree

Plastic shot glasses from Dollar Tree (2 packages)

Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue

I started by hot gluing a shot glass onto the bottom of the ball. I worked from the bottom up as the on/off switch was at the top.

I then started hot gluing the shot glasses onto the bulb around the first shot glass in a circle.

I continued adding rows until the whole bulb was full of shot glasses. Turn on the light and it’s ready to glow. I love these bulbs as they change colors too.

You can hang it up you like, or set it on display somewhere.

    Cute! I will most likely be asleep and the fireworks will probably wake me up. If I have a party, I will make this, there is still time . . . ?

    1. Thanks Naomie and I totally get it! I made this in part so I could count down early too, I’m sure everyone will wake me up – lol.

  2. Happy New Year! Great idea to make in the after Christmas time before New Year’s week.

    1. Thank you Kippi, and it’s a great project kids can do over the break as well.
