Halloween is my favorite holiday to decorate for, and I love to create my own spooky decor. I combined a glass bowl and candle stand from the thrift store with some awesome moon lights from Darice to create this DIY crystal ball decor. Keep reading to learn how easy it is to make this Halloween decor project.
DIY Crystal Ball Decor Supplies:
- Darice Round Glass Bowl
- Darice Purple LED Moon Lights
- Darice Black Feather Boa
- Krylon Looking Glass Spray Paint
- Black Craft Paint
- Column Candle Holder
Step 1. Spritz water into the inside of the round glass bowl. This will help create a mottled appearance. Since this is supposed to be a mystical looking crystal ball, I don’t want to create a perfect mirror finish.
Step 2. Spray the “Looking Glass” spray paint inside the glass bowl. This product is formulated to create a mirror like finish on the opposite side of the glass, so don’t worry that it looks hazy on the inside…the other side will be shiny!
Step 4. Remove the moon lights from the packaging. First open the battery compartment so you can remove the protective sleeve from the batteries. The lights are on a pliable wire cord, so gently spiral the lights around your hand to create a tube of lights. Place the lights inside the glass bowl, and set the bowl on top of the painted column, upside down.
Simply remove the bowl from the base to turn the lights on and off. The lights don’t show as well in the daylight, but in the dark they provide an eerie glow, perfect for Halloween decorating! This DIY crystal ball would make a great party centerpiece, don’t you think?
