Want to see something absolutely beautiful??
Aren't they beautiful?! Ugh. So gorgeous.. almost unbelievable actually!
Well guess what... they are unbelievable because here's my attempt at a string ball ----->
I was shown this awesome centerpiece idea for a wedding and was asked to try to recreate it.
I was thinking to myself, this will be the easiest crafting craft I've ever done! Things started off bad to begin with. I had all my supplies... balloons, string and fabric stiffener (which is almost impossible to find, I finally found it at Walmart and it was overpriced!)
I blew up my balloon and started to wrap it with string, since this was a very difficult task because the string kept slipping off, I couldn't take any pictures. The string was falling off, becoming untight and just overall being difficult. This is what it looked like before I sprayed it. As you can clearly see the string is loose, I thought that maybe it wouldn't matter and would just add to the artistic element of the ball when it was finished. HA.
Once I got enough string on, I took my stringy ball outside so I could spray it.
After it had dried for about 6 hours, I brought it inside and popped the balloon.
Do I need to say anymore? I think the pictures basically speak for themselves. Attempt 1: Failed. I really hope my failure at crafts isn't a repeating process for much longer because I am getting very frustrated!
Duke mocking me. How rude.
