    I did the exact same thing about five years ago. LEDs work really well for this purpose, especially with a variety of colors. If you’ve got superbright LEDs, It’s actually a bit better to put the them farther away so that their spots each hit more than one square on the mirror ball.

    We made the disco ball with a stack of AOL CDs, scissors, and silicone RTV (aquarium sealant). We glued a wire hook into the north pole and hooked that up to an old gear motor. A good kludge for a party.
