Glowing Crystal Ball - Halloween Craft

Stormy Stewart


I found this on facebook

These crystal balls are crafted from ordinary second-hand and hardware store finds!

The glass domes are easily found most second-hand stores for a dollar or two, and candle bases from any garage sale or flea market. The addition of glitter gives the balls a mystical look, and the glow-sticks offer a safe alternative to candles or electricity.

The glow sticks will last for 8 to 12 hours depending on temperature and come in assorted colors, but green looks the best.
