What I Did: Sadly, I’ve tried this project twice now. This time was by far a worse result. Everything looks great, until halfway through drying, then the balloon pops and the glue-covered string turns into a blob. 🙁

My Result:

Next Time I Will: maybe try a really thick balloon?  I don’t know. I think I’m done with this project.

    I have made this work with a few tweaks. It is easier if you use 100% cotton crochet thread (this is really the best option as it is light weight) or Cotton Sugar n Cream yarn with a product called Stiffy. They turned out really pretty and I put fairy lights in mine after they dried. It looks like you wrapped way too much yarn around the balloon. You want them to be open. Hope this helps.
