3. Rustic Twine Ball Ornament
It certainly is the perfect ornament for your rustic Christmas.
What you’ll need:
- white glue
- plaid ribbon
- glue gun
- Blow your balloon up to the size of the twine ball you want. Then soak the twine to the white glue and stick it to the surface of the balloon.
- Keep doing it until twines slightly cover the balloon. Allow it to dry and pop your balloons. Slowly take the remaining balloons from the twine ball.
- Decorate the twine ball with red ribbon on it. Now, you can hang it as a Christmas tree ornament.
The first step is to prepare twines and balloons. Small balloon suitable for making ball ornaments.
Cut the yarn according to the diameter of the balloon, then use the piece to measure the rest of your yarn.
These mine pieces are around 10 inches, but feel free to cut longer or shorter.
Mix about 1 part glue with 1 part water. Without water, this glue is very sticky and difficult to work with.
You need to remove some of the excess glue, otherwise your ball is going to be a drippy mess.
Press one end of the glue covered twine onto the top of the balloon, then wrap the rest of the strand of twine around the balloon.
Before you pop your balloon, make sure you separate the glued twine from the balloon. When the balloon has deflated, you can pull it out.
And then apply red ribbon to the twine ball. Tying a ribbon must be difficult. Use glue to make it look better.
Finally, you can install the twine ball ornament to decorate a Christmas tree in your home.
