Who would have thought of ping pong balls to enhance your mini lights? They look great! If the holes are drilled too big you could use a glue gun to make a small rim that still would allow you to change out the bulb if needed, yet snug enough not to easily fall out. As another alternative, you could make a diluted solution of white glue that dries clear, and dip the ping pong balls in the glue, then in some crushed clear plastic, or snow glitter, etc. This is a fun and pretty project, thanks for sharing!
