The idea behind these fun and festive decorations belongs to Crafty Endeavor, a fun and adorable blog. Here's what I did to make my own:
- Water balloons
- Fabric stiffener
- Embroidery floss
Simply blow up your balloons, drape the string in a bowl of the fabric stiffener, squeeze out the excess, and wrap your balloon!
Allow your string to dry completely before popping and removing the balloon, and voila!
A few useful tips:
- Blow up all of your balloons ahead of time
- Drape your string carefully- I found that spiraling the embroidery floss worked well- it will help prevent knots
- If you DO get a knot that you can't undo, simply snip the knot out and continue wrapping the string around the balloon
