I love these! They look great hanging at different lengths in a corner of a room.

Step 1: What You Will Need

What You Will Need:

-1 Bottle of Elmer's Glue
-Corn Starch
-Measuring Cup
- 100% Cotton Yarn - White or Light in Color (Feel free to try any color you want. I chose a lighter color, because I wanted to spray paint mine)
-Fishing Line
-Balloons (preferably medium to large ones)

*If you are doing this project inside you will need a Dollar Store Shower Curtain to help with the mess!
This project will be a bit messy!

Spray Paint to add color to yarn balls
<p>Totally going to make these, but paint them in metalic colours and glow in the dark modge podge and put a black bacdrop in the corner with glow in the dark stars!!! By the way, I love the collage about the human spirit thats beside ur yarn balls!!</p>
Love these and think we may make some for when we get remarried next year, maybe hang them from trees or somewhere. Thank for the inspiration.
I'm so doing these !
I will make it once I get yarn. Will it work with thread?
You could give it a shot! It will be very thin and more likely to break apart. I would hold off until you got some yarn, then you can save your thread. Thanks for checking out this tutorial!
Thanks so much for sharing this information! I have been looking into <a href="http://www.cost-cogifts.com/default.asp?dept_id=45000" rel="nofollow">inexpensive home decor</a> and all the new cool things I can find! Can you tell me where I can find even more cool ideas? Thanks!
Cool! I need to make one of these!
ooo those would make cool outside decorations, maybe some metallic spray paint, silver or those really cool metal red, blue and purple ones. (cause I do have those) I think i just might try this, I'm just wondering how well it will hold up to being outside with rain and such, how sturdy is that glue that you made?
That's a good question. I have to say that I'm not sure.If you were to spray them with a clear coat it might give them protection against the elements. Worth a shot. I thought these would make great lawn ordainments too! Good Luck!
I will try that, i even got me some balloons last night :)
Ooh, that's super cool!
