She Starts By Stapling Plastic Cups Together. By The Time She's Done, The Result Is Stunning

It doesn't always take a lot of money to make the best projects come to life. With some simple equipment and a whole lot of creativity, anything is possible. A man by the name of, Gaspar Muniz, made a fantastic tutorial on how to make a patio light out of plastic cups and fairy lights. The process may seem a bit tedious, but the final result is worth all of the time and effort. 

The first step to making your next do-it-yourself patio light is to drill a hole at the bottom of each plastic cup.

Next, staple each cup side by side until a complete circle is formed.


Using clothes pegs to keep the cups in place, continue to add layers of the same circle.

Keep this up until the plastic cups resemble half a globe.

Here is where the holes on the bottom come into play. Thread the fairy lights through the underside of each cup.


Repeat the same process with an identical half globe. When finished, stable both halves together to make a sphere.

Turn the fairy lights on and marvel at your stunning creation. This would look great just about anywhere.
