    PEOPLE OF PINTEREST, STOP TRYING TO MAKE TWINE BALLS OUT OF YARN. Twine is normally made of natural fibers which are able to absorb liquids. Cheap-o yarn is usually acrylic which does not absorb moisture very well (read: GLUE). It’s like trying to glue a bunch of spaghetties together by slopping glue on just the outside pieces and then wondering why the middle fell out. This Pinterest fail is a user error.

    I have actually had this work for me but this was years ago (before pinterest!) I sprayed the balloons all over with light coating of cooking oil first!! then dragged the yarn thru elmers glue to apply. After all the yarn was applied then the balloon was hung up for a couple hours to let the glue dry then pop the balloon and it usually will slide right out! It helps to have two people work together because the balloons are slippery!!

    Years ago, when I was a kid, my mother did a similar project with me. We used yarn and it held together just fine.
