Step 8: Using a Ping Pong Ball

If you are using a ping pong ball instead of an egg you can follow the same process as with the egg. There is just a few exceptions:

To make a hole in the ball, use a nail, and insert into ball, it is easiest when you poke the hole in the seam. With a knife carve around the hole to make it large enough to fit over the light of the LED candle. (Use caution, when using these sharp objects.)

To colour the ping pong ball orange, use an orange felt pen or highlighter.

The ping pong ball I used had a logo on it so I had to work my design around it.
nice post dude i like it so much, that was awesome idea
I have been checkin' out Instructables for quite a while. I am amazed each and every time I &quot;tune in&quot;. <br> All of you Instructiblers are just an amazing and fascinating crew. <br>The depth and breadth of all of your talents is almost beyond comprehension! <br> So hard to vote! So many fantastic examples of creativity and ingenuity! <br>Yet another incredible example.... <br>Absolutely, without question, my favorite web site. <br> 'Instructables' should be a mandatory part of high school/college curriculum.
Yes, it would be great to encourage creativity and ingenuity in schools!
No way! I never thought of doing something like this, awesome! My kids would love this project.
Yes It's a fun project for kids!
to help get out to yolk break it up with a skewer and use a small aquairium pump worked for us on easter eggs mom only broke a few that way
Thanks for the advice, I like the idea of using the pump I find blowing it out kind of gross.
He's suppervising you
these will work for our goose eggs no futsing with resizing the patterns! ;) <br>
Great idea! thanks for making the i'ble with so much detail, its nice to see.<br><br>you could also print the images out and cut out the areas you want kept white, glue them on the egg with some glue stick, then spray paint, you could even hang the shell from a thread knotted on one end and strung through the small blow hole.
Stringing them up sounds like a great idea. Thanks.
hey! good idea.. i used to paint and draw on eggshells all the time.. never though of lighting em up!
Yeah, they glow quite nicely.
Great idea!
Clever! Carole B.
