What I Did: I tried to recreate the yarn ball lantern. The pictures made it look so cool and easy! I had glue everywhere, the yarn kept getting tangled. It was not as easy as it looked!

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I would try to find spray-on glue (not even sure this exists).

    Stiffy fabric stiffener works well and another tip is to use 100% cotton yarn is sock weight or cotton crochet thread. The crochet thread takes longer to wrap but dries faster and is more delicate and pretty.
