Step 1: Collect your materials
In order to make your very own string of party cup lights, you'll need the following:
- A string of C7 size "holiday" lights. This can be any length, or any number of strings you desire. We used clear light bulbs, though you could use colored lightbulbs or a different style plastic cup for a different effect.
- Plastic Cups. As many as you have sockets on the light string. 16 oz is the most common size.
- A drill with a bit larger than the threaded base of of your bulbs. 1/2" for a C7 bulb.
You could also add an in-line dimmer to change the look or use twinkle bulbs to create a livelier mood.
