FAQs: I've had a lot of people ask about where I found my ornaments and lights.
The lights are easy. You can find similar ones HERE on amazon. You need the "tiny" size to fit through the opening of the ball.
The ornaments are from the dollar store, but I have noticed that this year the interiors of the same ornaments are grey not white To check, just remove the gold hanger from the ornament. The plastic should show there and you can tell if it is white. I don't have a direct link for ornaments online.
