An Amazing DIY Light Element For Your Summer Party

An Amazing DIY Light Element For Your Summer Party

Written by 

The right lighting at a party can set a mood instantly. Buying new lighting, especially for an outdoor party, can get pricey, but most do-it-yourself projects take a lot of time. If you’re planning a party, you are already stretched for time, even if you have maid services take over the cleaning.

This project is quick and easy—you can make one great-looking light in 20 minutes or several over the course of an hour or two. The effect is beautiful, the method is simple, and the supplies, affordable. It doesn’t get much better than that!

How to Make a Glitter “Disco Ball” Light

While DIY Craft Tutorials made their light for a Halloween party, this is a great project for summertime—glitter lighting for an outdoor party can transform your backyard in no time!

Here’s how:

  1. Assemble the lantern. Paper lanterns are affordable (about $5 each!) and a snap to set up. Just follow the manufacturer’s directions for extending the lantern and adding the bulb to get started.
  2. Work quickly with spray glue and glitter. Spray glue on a small area, then immediately add glitter. Spray glue dries quickly, so it’s important to work in small areas. Work your way around the lantern until it’s completely coated in glitter.
  3. Let set & repeat. Let it sit for a minute to make sure the glue is dry, then do the same thing again, adding another layer of glitter on top of the first. Repeat these steps until you’re satisfied with the result.

The thick layers are what take it from looking like a DIY craft to an actual light figure, so stick with it! The result will be worth it; a great addition to any party!
