If anyone is looking for a rustic holiday decoration, I have just the thing for you! I did these easy jute covered balloon balls and they turned out so awesome. Below you can see my step by step process from start to finish. This idea has me thinking in all kinds of creative directions using string art to decorate for the holidays. I may have to make more! In the meantime check out my picture tutorial and follow along today.
First I gathered all the supplies I needed. (See photo above)
Water Balloons, Scissors, Paint brush, Mod Podge, and Jute.
I also used rubber gloves and a tupperware container that are not pictured.
I blew up the balloons to be mini balls, and then I added the Mod Podge to the tupperware container.
I proceeded to dunk the jute into the mod podge and then wrap it around the balloon using my rubber gloves for protection.
I wrapped about 20 times.
Then I used the paint brush to reinforce the mod podge to the jute.
I let it dry for 24 hours.
Once it was all dry, I popped the balloon and removed it from the middle of the ball.
The jute stayed in place!! Woohoo!! I then used a tweezer to get any extra mod podge out of the gaps and make the ball look cleaner.
I added an ornament hook to the ball and hung it on my tree!
