Aren't they lovely? I was nominated to decorate the Relief Society Christmas tree for our church Christmas party. The different auxiliaries are having a decorating contest and everything needs to be homemade. I found these beauties on pinterest and thought I'd give them a try.
Once I popped the balloons they shrunk and collapsed the strings.
I tried using scissors and painstakingly loosened every piece of string before popping the balloon. It still didn't hold it's shape.
I think maybe I used the wrong kind of string. I used yarn instead. That was the only thing I did different so I'm guessing that was the problem.
Has anyone else make successful String Ornaments?
