How do I make the spheres?
Step 1: Glue cups to each other at the base. (Keep rims and bottoms level.)
Step 2: Continue gluing cups to each other until sphere is complete.

That is really pretty and fun! How many cups did you need to make the sphere? Did you use 2oz or 1oz cups? From what I can see online, it looks like the cups are sold by the case so size makes a big difference in the price point. Thanks!

It would be very cool to add a string of battery operated led lights inside the ball. They emit very little heat, so it wouldn't be an issue with melting the plastic or glue. Thanks for the great idea!

I found the colored shot glass cups at the dollar store (24 of one color) - they had pink, green, orange, and blue

Hi! How cool idea! Could you tell how many cups needed to make the whole ball? I'm from the UK and found these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-PACK-60-NEON-COLOURED-PLASTIC-SHOT-GLASSES-IDEAL-FOR-ANY-PARTY-2-fl-oz-GLASS-/110900859585?pt=UK_Home_Garden_Celebrations_Occasions_ET&hash=item19d234d2c1#ht_500wt_1287 Do you think they will be okay? Thanks, Helga
