Thanks, it took me about 2 days to drill all holes .First i marked all spots to be drilled using a marker then i drilled holes on those marked parts and some polishing its Done!!

The reason you did not get dots is that you are getting a projection of your light source. You are showing a clear bulb as your light source so you are seeing the filament being projected through each of the holes. The closer you get to a point light source the closer you will get to a dot. Also the farther the light source is from the hole the smaller the projected image will be. If you use more than one light source and at different distances from the holes, as a bunch of Christmas lights, you will have different size projections for each light source. I would try using LED lights and tie them into a tight bundle, trying to make as much of a ball shape as possible, in the center of the ball.

If you were to put Christmas lights in there (especially the programable flashing type), I'd bet the colors and effects would be amazing.
