They are so cute! I might try to do a few to hang amongst my chinese lanterns…just to add some more texture.

Those are fabulous!  I was going to try and make those but ended up doing tissue paper pomanders and vine balls instead.  Great job!

WOW! I love these. I wanted to try and make these myself, but I just don’t have the time or patience for another project. Congrats!

I LOVE string balls. I really wanted to do some after seeing them on the blog, but I ran out of time. 🙁 Yours turned out really good!

I love them! We are planning to do some but I am having trouble figuring out how many I need. A big hall with steep ceilings (like a barn). 

Can you tell me quickly how you did them? Did you cover the balloons in Vaseline? I heard you have to use an anti-stick thing but wondering if “spray pam” hahahah would work. 

Any tips for success? How did you dry them?

Do you just use that regular white string on a roll that you see everywhere? I heard some people spray paint them a colour as well if that is what you are looking for. Good idea!

Love them! I’ve thought about doing these as well. Our venue already has a few Japanese lanterns hanging around the perimeter (our reception will be on a terrace), and I think these could look nice spaced inbetween. Great job!

Those look so good! I made some too and they were quite a bit of work but I love them! The tutorial that I read also said that you can spray paint them different colors not that they’re secure also!
