Disco balls are no longer strictly dancing; adding one to the corner of a room adds a bit of whimsy. While disco ball decor is not a new idea, the crowd goes wild every time I post one on social media. Popped in the old shop’s window — a moth to the flame. Every customer gravitated toward these magical balls. Maybe 2023 will be the year disco ball decor becomes the new live, laugh, love trend, but until then, I’m going to embrace the sparkle they bring to a room. Here are six ideas for decorating with disco balls and if you need some added ambiance, check out this 70s disco vibe playlist. Oh, and at the very bottom, I included a free download of disco ball art for your gallery wall because I love ya!
Unique Disco Ball Decor Ideas For Your Home
1. Pop A Disco Ball On A Chair
Have an accent chair that isn’t used daily; pop a smaller disco ball on it. This one is 8″ in diameter and sits in my upstairs hallway.
2. Make An Entire Room Sparkle
This one requires chasing light, but trust me, it’s worth the wait. I have a medium-sized disco ball sitting in the corner of my office, and every afternoon my office has a moment—the magic hour of the sun setting and hitting that mirror ball just right…yahtzee.
If I had high ceilings, I would totally hang this 24″ disco ball from the ceiling and let it be the center of attention.

3. The Melted Disco Ball
The priciest option of all my disco ball decor, but the melted version is a showstopper. I’m a bit more protective of this one because it needs to sit on the edge of a 90° corner putting it in prime position for a Humpty Dumpty moment. I’ve moved it around a few times, but currently, its home is on the new custom limestone fireplace. I will warn you, if you put this melted disco ball in your home, every guest will want to touch it.
This melted version is not cheap, but it is more affordable than the Kelly Wearstler originals. (BTDubs, have you seen the coffee table version? I’m obsessed with this chair by Rachel Shillander…not so much with the price.) You can shop them all here:

4. A Tiny Flash Of Fun
So you don’t want balls tripping you up and lying on the floor, but you still want a pop of magic? Easy peasy. Remember my round-up of cute mushroom decor? These tiny disco mushrooms would look adorable on a kitchen window sill or desk. I have a couple of disco ball ornaments on my Christmas tree, but you could also use them as filler in a pretty bowl.

5. Use As Centerpiece Decor
Throw a Studio 54 themed disco party and use a few disco balls as decor in the centerpiece of the appetizer table, or pop them on a bar cart. Oh, and please don’t forget to invite me because this soiree sounds spectacular!
