What I Did: I thought this would be a great activity for my 8 year old daughter and her friends. We used 12″ balloons only filled halfway. I bought yarn from Target and used slightly watered down mod podge. We followed the directions exactly.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: For us, this project can’t be saved. Something went really wrong. I guess I could try really small balloons.

    It’s not the size of the balloons it was your glue mixture that failed. The other ornaments were made with a different type of yarn, the kind you use to make doilies with. You used a larger yarn, like you’d use to make mittens.
