Instructions
1. Place the grapevine ball on top of the workspace.
2. Start filling the inside of the grapevine ball with the string of lights by inserting the end without the plug into the middle of the ball.
3. Gradually put the entire string of lights inside the middle of the ball. (It is fine if a few of the bulbs spill out the sides.)
