How do I make glue string balls?
Step 1: Hang inflated balloon from ceiling.
Step 2: Put string and glue in the jar with a hole in the lid. Next, pull string from hole while wrapping around the balloon.
Step 3: Wait until dry (try to contain yourself). Pop and remove balloon.

I would like to try putting glitter either in the glue or sprinkle on while still wet. This might be a good way to add a little color also.

If you use a thinner string which of course means using more string you can make Easter Eggs or Easter Egg baskets.

And you could put a string of lights inside to make a cool lighting sculpture. Anyone tried puttingballoons together or twisting them first to make other shapes?

I learned the ( hard way )string was not dry enough . When i made them last one i used a hair dryer to speed up the drying process, works great . :)
