Do ping pong balls come in colors or did you paint them? You show all white ping pong balls.

Great idea. The "matte" finish makes them less twinkly holidaylike.

How about the seamless balls sold on e-bay? I'll try and report back.

I bought a bunch of LED holiday lights over the last few yearsafter Christmas, they're discounted 50% or more!

Oh my god best idea I've seen in a long while! I am SO gonna do that! THANK YOU!
I think these lights look really great! Now we just gotta make the strand look as good as the lights. I know the sell white strands, but could the strands be painted easily, such as with spray paint?

This is such a great idea. I'm gonna try this with some LEDs hanging at different lengths.
Go poke some extra holes in the ping pong balls so little spots of light go everywhere.

This would be really cool on my mountain bike. I would do it with the battery operated rice lights I bought some years ago at Big Lots during Christmas time. Then nobody can say they didn't see me coming at night.

I love the effect but I wonder...do you have to worry about the ping pong balls heating up and melting if you leave these on too long?

I've ran them all day with no noticeable heating, so there shouldn't be a problem, but I would keep an eye on them just in case especially when first testing it.
