Introduction: Rainbow Ping Pong Ball Light

About: I'm a guy who likes to make crazy stuff and movie props

This is a tutorial for a ping pong light show. It uses an LED strip with ping pong balls, which makes a cool effect with RGB LED's. It will cycle through rainbow colors


You will need either a dremel or a drill, a hot glue gun, a multicolor LED strip, and anything you want to use to mount the light.

Step 1: Step 1: Drill the Ping-pong Balls

Use either a dremel or a drill to make the holes in the ping pong ball. Measure the width of your LED strip so you know what bit you use. Drill through both sides, horizontal to the ball's logo so the logo doesn't go in the front.

Step 2: Step 2: Place on the Stick

Now, take your first ball, glue it on the back of your led strip. Put the rest on, without any glue. Once you reach the end of the strip, put the last one on and glue it. If you want, you can mount the whole thing to the wall by attaching a magnet to it and the wall.

Step 3: Step 3: Plug In!

Finally, plug in your light strip and enjoy the party.
