DIY Twine Ball

Yesterday I was on the hunt for vase/bowl fillers.  I came across a few awesome posts on how to make Twine decorative balls.  My favorite one being Tuesday Craftday's tutorial. So I had try this.


Supplies:
Equal Parts of White Glue & Water (I used about half a bottle for 6-8 balls)
Balloons 
Twine/Yarn/Whatever String You Choose

Step 1: Mix Your Glue & Water in a bowl and place twine in bowl to saturate. 
Step 2: Blow Balloons to the Size You Want Your Balls to Be.
Step 3: Wrap the Glue soaked Twine around the Balloon.
Step 4: Let Dry Thoroughly and Pop Balloon & pull it through the holes now exposed.

Helpful Hint: When Wrapping the Twine make sure you a leave a gap large enough to pull the balloon through!

  33. Awesome. We want to make hanging twine balls and hot glue fall leaves onto them for my daughter's wending reception. Will suspend them from the ceiling and put battery operated candles in them.Thanks for showing us how to do it.
