Can you do this on the outside of the ball? I have some globes that are white and would like to reuse them.

Hi juliegriffinsmith, I purchased them at an online lighting supply company. Frances1947, In my experience spraying on the outside does not have the same effect as applying the paint to the inside of clear glass. Best, Sarah

These orbs are an unusual and romantic addition to our bedroom. And they’re a good reminder that do-it-yourself projects can be a budget-friendly option for seasonal decorating and a great way to create unique holiday accents.More: Budget Decorator: Easy Holiday Decorations
