It’s been a while since I’ve posted a party DIY here on Lemon Thistle- and that’s one of my favourite things to post about! I figured I should remedy that lickety split and these Colour Edged Honeycomb Party Balls seemed like the perfect way to do that! This DIY is about as simple as they come and can be made to match any colour of decorations. I chose to edge the white honeycomb party balls in black for a monochromatic party with pops of blue, but they would look ah-mazing edged with hot pink… could someone give that a try and send me the photos? I’d love you forever.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
- Ready to assemble honeycomb party balls in white
- Chunky black marker (or whichever colour you choose to edge them!)
- That’s it… but I felt like there needed to be more than two things on the list
Ready for the shortest post ever? Before assembling the honeycomb balls, colour the edges with your marker. You may need to space out the papers a bit to get a darker colour on the edges. Then… assemble them and hang! Seriously easy, right? The fun thing about them is from straight on, you don’t see the edging, but as the ball moves or as you do, you get the flashes of edging.
I think these honeycombs are going to migrate to my office because I don’t want to take them down! What do you think? Will you try this DIY… and what colour would you choose? I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
Love this!! I think it’d be super cute in gold or pink but the black is pretty awesome too.
Thanks so much Nicole! Gold would be amazing, I actually just created a honeycomb project for The Land of Nod using metallics, I think you’ll like it :)
Those are gorgeous! I love the dimension it gives! So much nicer than just one color!
Thanks so much Christine! It kind of reminds me of driving by an orchard or something… that’s a thing right?
lol. I don’t know if that’s a thing, but it works :) I’m never in the know.
Haha, What I said made no sense I’m realizing… I meant when you drive and go by rows and rows of an orchard or trees and only the part right beside you has gaps, and the rest looks tighter together… but it’s really not important!

How clever! This is indeed a short post, indeed! I love how the black marker defined the honeycomb pattern. So simple and pretty! :D
Haha sometimes short and sweet is the way to go, right? I’d love to try it with neon one day!
