- Yarn (I bought a skein of gray and a skein of yellow. I'm not sure how many yarn balls this will yield because I haven't finished yet.)
- Elmers Glue
- A tray to mix the glue and water in
Here's a tip: When I popped my balloons at the end, I noticed the yarn was stuck to the balloon, so my yarn balls deflated a little bit. I've heard that if you cover your balloon with Vaseline before hand, this won't happen.
- When the balloon is sufficiently wrapped with yarn, cut the yarn from the rest of the skein, tuck the end in, and roll the entire balloon around in the glue mixture again to make sure the yarn is coated.
- Then lay the balloon on a piece of wax paper to dry overnight. Tip: I had to dry mine for about 2 days, flipping the balloon over after the first day.
- When you're sure the glue is completely dry, go ahead and pop the balloons and pull them out from the inside of the balls. You should have round, hollow yarn balls when you're done.
