Decorating with light balls for Christmas can be as simple as hanging one or a few spheres in varying colors and sizes or as complex as creating an entire forest of floating orbs. The beauty of this easy to install outdoor Christmas decoration is not just in the display, but in the multitude of creative possibilities.
There are two kinds of light balls, each with their own distinct personalities.
Starlight Spheres are completely covered in star-shaped petals and each petal has a light at the center which creates the effect of a glowing orb - the illumination is stunning! The attached hanging string and S hook make starlight spheres an easy decoration to hang just about anywhere!
Folding Light Balls can be hung and displayed on the ground or standing in a planter, garden or indoor space. The durable metal frame folds flat for convenient storage and assembles in just seconds. The light ball frame is outlined with vibrant LED lights and the open design provides flexibility for several DIY possibilities, like creating a Christmas themed flower ball.
