Holiday Light Globe Hack

Micky
2017-03-22

Ok, I know you can buy just about any type of holiday lighted shape, object or animal these days, but what if you could do it simple, and from things you may already have around the house? We created this holiday light globe hack with wire baskets from the garden shed, ($5 at Home Depot!) some floral wire, and white mini lights. Make sure if you’re putting this globe outdoors that you buy lights approved for outdoor use. Oh, and make sure all your lights are UL listed, ok? We don’t need any of you burning down the garage ‘cause you saved $2 at a swap meet. :)

 
So this is really simple.

 
1. Wire two wire hanging baskets together to make a globe shape. We used floral wire as shown below.

 
2. Wrap the globe with white lights. We did a little wire tie every 12 inches or so, just to make sure it all stayed in place. Use your own judgement, you may not need them at all! We used 2, 100 light strings.


 
3. Hang with the same chain and hardware that came with the hanging baskets! We attached the hooks near where the end of the lights came out, so that the cord could run up the chains and be more hidden.

Done!

We hung ours off the eaves of the house, but we think they would look cool laying in the garden as giant “Snowballs” too…. Different sizes? You could have fun with this! Line the front walk with glowing globes?


 
We were inspired by these lighted globes from ‘BHG‘… We discovered those large grapevine spheres are not only hard to find, but pretty expensive even in small sizes… Hence, the hack! How’d we do?
