    So you followed the directions to buy rattan balls from the dollar store, chose not to use them, and then made string/glue balls to put on your lights instead?

      I don’t think “followed instructions” means what you think it means…

    I don’t see how this one was published. OP did not do what the original pin said to do. Perhaps the wrong link was included?

    I have done this string craft and looking at this makes me think the string was not completely dry before you tried to remove the balloon. No matter how many hours the directions say to let it dry, you have to adjust the time for your location and weather. I think drying it inside instead of outside would make a difference, too. Also, take into consideration the thickness of the string. I hope you aren’t too discouraged! I’ve used a hair dryer to soften the glue in order to pull a ball into the shape I want. That might work for yours.

    Pretty sure the wrong link was included. I think OP was following one of those DIY twine balls which requires wrapping twine around a blown balloon. Judging from the result I think the glue was applied on too thickly all over the balloon and wasn’t allowed enough time to dry , hence the translucent shell and the sagging
