DIY orbs, lit from within, create an ethereal display.
To create a similar effect in your front or back yard this season, purchase artificial wire or sisal balls from a garden centre (these conceal light cords better than wide-weave twig or wicker balls). Create an opening in each ball by gently pulling the wire or sisal apart, and carefully pack each globe with strings of white Christmas lights. Connect the lights to an extension cord and run the cord discreetly to an outlet.
