Now, with this project, you can make either a globe, a lampshade, or a lantern. If you choose to make a lantern, you will also need things for the light. Don't worry, they are easy to find at your local Home Depot or hardware store.
Additional lampshade supplies include a light bulb, clamp, washer, and electrical cord.
Okay, now that we have everything we need, let's get messy!
Prep your materials.
You are going to be getting messy with this one. So, prepare your space with garbage bags and towels laid flat on your counter top, as well as this super stylish trash bag "smock." Better safe than sorry!
You will need a large opening on the bottom, and a small one on the top for the cord to come through. Also, don't forget to put a small mark where the ball will deflate, just to remind yourself where it is.
Here is where the fun begins! Take your gluey, sticky string, and just start wrapping the ball tightly with it. Go from one end to the other, making sure you are leaving the top small hole, and bottom larger hole open.
If you are making a globe, you can ignore this part. If not, here is how to hook up the electrical part. As mentioned earlier, you will need a hanging electrical cord, an LED light bulb, a 3/8 inch two piece clamp connector, and a one by 3/4 inch washer.
