How to Make Christmas Light Balls

Required Materials

First, gather your supplies. For this project, you’ll need chicken wire, small wire cutters, a measuring tape, gloves, and our LED mini lights.

Measure the Chicken Wire

Roll out the chicken wire and measure out the dimensions. To create a spherical shape, the chicken wire must be twice as long as it is wide. We are creating a 2′ Christmas light ball, so our chicken wire was 2′ x 4′.

Cut Chicken Wire

Cut the chicken wire at the measured area. Because chicken wire can be sharp and hard to handle, gloves come in handy when manipulating the wiring.

Put Sides Together

Once the chicken wire is cut, place the two cut sides together and connect by twisting the wires around each other.

Twist Wire to Hold

As you can see in this picture, we created a bond by twisting the wire.

Create Funnel

Now you’ll have a funnel of chicken wire. This is where the shaping process begin.
