Everyone thinks the same thing when they see a disco ball: time to party! Don’t fret if you don’t have room for a real disco ball and dance floor at your next gathering. Instead, DIY your way to a funky-fresh party full of '70s-inspired bling.

1970s-Inspired Stirrer

Transform a small Styrofoam ball into a disco ball with just a few easy-to-find materials. Secure the end of a string of sequin trim to the ball with a pin and roll the trim around in a spiral securing with a pin every few sequins until the entirety of the foam ball is covered. Use scissors to cut off the excess and slide the ball on to a wooden skewer. Garnish your favorite cocktail for a dreamy disco drinking experience!

Where there are disco-themed cocktail stirrers, there are bound to be disco-themed cocktail glasses as well. To make yours, simply cover a small dollar-store glass bowl with adhesive mirror tiles. Before you know it, you’ll have a miniature disco ball worthy of your favorite cocktail.

To make these party-approved disco glasses, all you need is a large pair of sunglasses with a wide plastic rim around the frames. Chances are, you have some in a drawer somewhere that you’ve forgotten about. Just line the plastic frame with adhesive mirror tiles until fully covered, and get ready to be the life of the party!
