This magic crystal ball really GLOWS! And guess what, it only requires three things and takes just about five minutes to make! Get ready to be the belle of the Halloween ball with this fortune teller crystal ball – no one will ever believe you made it yourself!
Oh man, oh man, oh man! Am I excited about this new little piece of Halloween decor I’ve added to the collection this year!
I love for my Halloween decorations to look as real as possible. Real as in super spooky, authentic looking pieces that’d you see if you rolled up into the Sanderson sisters house.
And this one, well this one fits all that criteria.
It’s a glowing crystal ball.
Folks, it really glows! And it is probably one of the easiest Halloween decorations I’ve ever made!

How fun is that? I just keep expecting to see a spirit’s face emerge within the ball any moment now. 😉
How to Make a Crystal Ball
- White Globe Glass Light Shade – like the one found here; you can buy the globe separately in-store.
- Battery Powered LED String Lights in Purple – I used these.
- Batteries for String Lights – the ones I used needed two AA batteries.
- Holder / Platform for the Globe – I used a pillar candle holder I found at a thrift store.
Remove the LED lights from the package and insert the batteries.
Wind the string lights into a circle.
Turn on the string lights. Place the string lights and battery pack through the opening on the bottom of the glass globe. The lights should go more into the globe and the battery pack should be at the base opening of the globe.
While holding the battery pack still inside the globe, lower and tilt the globe onto whatever you are using for your globe holder. As you’re putting the globe down, you can carefully let go of the battery pack. It will sit just fine on the holder; you just don’t want it banging around in the globe while you’re putting it on it’s holder.
That’s it! So easy, right?
I love the purple glow this fortune teller ball gives off. It’s just perfect for Halloween and looks great beside my spell book (grab that printable spell book cover here if you haven’t already!)
