light balls

Hello dear bloggers!
I once fell in love with small balls lying in my friends yard. They would light up come night, and they looked lovely in the snow, lighting it into different colours.
So finally I decided to crochet myself some! 
What we need is some white wool to make a ball out of, some small clear plastic filling,  a small bike lamp with a small battery of your chosen colour and some waterproof glue. 
We fill the ball with the filling and plop in the light (making sure the light switch is in the opening) Then we glue (or sew) around tight. 
When it gets darker we place the balls on the snow and et voila!
 I took a couple of pictures of this, sadly, I only had green.
 It's easy, simple and cheap, and looks lovely! 

I wish you all a sunny fall day and many smiles!

Witajcie kochani blogowicze!
Kiedys zachwycily mnie kuleczki materialowe rozrzucone przed domem mojej przyjaciolki ,kiedy zapadal zmrok kuleczki sie zapalaly i wygladalo to slicznie jak by sie swiecil snieg.
Wiec i ja postanowilam zrobic podobna na szydelku .Potrzebujemy biala wloczke aby zrobic z niej kuleczke ,przezroczyste kawaleczki plastiku,malenka latareczke od roweru na baterie w dowolnym kolorze zaroweczki i klej wodoodporny.Do zrobionej kuleczki wsypujemy przezroczysty zwirek ,wkladamy latareczke (tak aby pstryczek do swiatla byl widoczny)i zaklejamy lub zaszywamy.Kiedy sie zrobi ciemno zapalona kuleczke ukladamy na snieg.Zrobilam kilka zdjec jak kuleczka wyglada,niestety mialam tylko zielona latareczke.Proste ,latwe i tanie a wyglada slicznie.
Duzo slonecznej  jesieni i jak zawsze usmiechu Wam zycze!

Hello Katherine:
This is so ingenious and so very different. Not only is this a most unusual idea but also a very effective one and we imagine that a number of these balls, placed together, must look exceedingly pretty. Are you thinking of going into production?!!
