Ping Pong

When you don't have a paddle or a table what can you do with a ping pong ball? Well you grab a sharpie marker, a craft knife and a battery operated tealight and you make yourself a Jack o' lantern.

Use the sharpie marker to draw a face on the ping pong ball and then with the craft knife, carefully cut an x on the bottom of the ball. Cut away just enough of the plastic so that the ball will fit over the tealight flame. This is not my original idea. I saw several of these online. I haven't been able to get myself in to crafting mode but this was quick and easy. After I took this picture I also poked a hole in the top and stuck in a green pipe cleaner for a stem.


  1. Oh goodness, that is so cute. What a good idea.

  2. I love it. this is adorable.. you could even do it and make it a lit Christmas ornament. now if only I had a ping pong ball.
    when the photo came up I thought in my head... ping pong the witch is dead... I am losing it.

  3. So cute. You are so clever. You could do a bunch of those and then line them up in your windows and that would be most fun.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

  4. It is a cute and easy craft - assuming a person has a ping pong ball, a sharpie marker, a battery operated tea light, a green pipe cleaner and a craft knife! I have none of those things and if I had, I would probably slash a finger open with the knife...*sigh*

  5. This is awesome!! And easy, so many of us could do it! Your face is perfection, and so even!

  6. Get the heck out of Dodge!!!!! Too flipping cute, Ann!...:)JP

  7. So cute! Saw another ping pong idea on FB, punch a small hole in the top, wrap a piece of cheesecloth dipped in fabric stiffener around the ping pong ball to make a wee ghost, make him a bunch of friends and when the fabric stiffener has dried stick each ping pong ghost onto a string of white mini Christmas lights ☺😱
