    I was meandering through Dollar Tree earlier and saw packages of 8 ping pong balls for $1 and remembered a cute craft from Pinterest.

    So, I purchased 80 balls and hurried home to bribe my son to dig out a strand of multi-colored Christmas lights. Then I went to drilling... ;)

    I think they're fun and can't wait to hang them from our awning on our first camp out of 2014 that begins in just 3 more sleeps!

    So many wrong things could be said about this ... [LOL] [LOL]

    But looks like a good idea ... May have to make something like this myself... right now we have 2 or 3 different looking light strings we use, changing them out every couple trips so it's always different...

    Oh my goodness, I happen to have a new string of colored Christmas lights but with white wires. I don't know 'why' I got them, probably found them on sale. I can't (or won't) use them on a green tree, but this is an amazing idea!!! I wonder how deep they are buried in the attic???

    Our first trip is our rally in three weeks (not 3 sleeps [:(]), but I will try to get this done.

    Thank you!

    Haha! They are fun! I think. A 3/16 drill bit was perfect for the lights I have. ;)

    Added to the dollar store list. I already use Christmas light from years gone by - I like the glow of these.
