Turn ordinary Ping-Pong balls into lights so beautiful, nobody will believe you made them yourself

String lights can add a whole new level of ambiance to your home or yard, but the store-bought versions can be quite expensive. That's why we've created a fun DIY tutorial that you can follow to make your very own whimsical string lights with just a few materials.
If you've got lights that have been collecting dust since Christmas, dig them out of the closet and transform them into lights you can display all year long! String them along your staircase to create a grand entryway, or hang them above your patio for a magical evening glow that'll turn your outdoor space into a place you actually want to spend time!
