Easy Christmas Craft Idea: Make A Light Up Mistletoe Ball!

Pucker up, buttercup.  ‘Tis the season for a good ol’ fashioned Christmas Craft. Well, “old fashioned” not so much now that LED lights are readily available. And actually dare I say Christmas craft because I hear “kissing ball” ornaments are becoming a year round thing, did you know this??  News to me.  Thanks, Pinterest, I really am learning somethin’ new every day.  Here’s hoping I can teach Pinterest a thing or 2 — check out FBL’s own simple craft for the holidays.  Making DIY Light Up Mistletoe makes for a fun gift to give at holiday parties…

*Ooo* la la!  This Christmas Craft can be done in a jiffy with our battery-powered LED string lights, available is many shapes. Above’s cute lil’ green trees, and my favorite to the left is steady white stars, dainty & magical. Wrap them around a mistletoe ball, or floral KISSING ball if you will, and *voila!* Hide the battery house within your Christmas craft, in the ball itself OR in a pocket should you use these babies on a tacky Christmas sweater – oh please do, you will not regret it!  More pics of that magic craft coming soon…

‘Til next time, light crafters!

Faith_1Here’s our pal Faith wearing one of the most popular Frozen Party Ideas ever ever, muy clever.  She used one of our blinky snowflake earrings to light up her DIY snow queen crown.  Creative kiddo!  The glitter foam crown we crafted thanks to this free template from My Sister’s Suitcase.  Little ladies love tiara crafts done together as a party activity, plus the joy they feel taking home their crafted creation, ahh, nothing compares when you’re young.  It’s a proud moment.  This Frozen party idea takes the cake.  Speaking of cake!!?!

Jacob_1FBL Light Up Ice Cubes as cupcake toppers.  Perfect Frozen-inspired party flare, right?  Nothing short of fabulous.  I guarantee these will make your party guests “OOOooo” & “Aaaahhh”.

But I digress!  Back to the craft.  Faith’s brother Jacob became a fan of our Arts & Crafts Blinkies in a flash, plus he didn’t need much to make it pop.  I love how one simple LED light added to his reindeer antlers brightened his day.  Nice work, young man!  Excellent tribute to that furry dude with the shiny nose.  You would even say it *glows*…

Outtake LOLz!  Pretty sure the sugar rush is kickin’ in here.  Cupcakes were definitely consumed.  Also, DINOSAURS.  Important stuff, folks.Jacob_2

Stay tuned for our next snowflake themed episode where we explore a light craft ideal for parents making party favors or gifts in advance, plus fun to do with older kids; think adolescents, tweens & beyond…  Here’s a teaser:Craft_with_11650MLT
