I say go for it, the only thing I see taking a lot of time is the aging process…but, where there’s a will, there’s a way.

I’m considering it now, myself ; ) lol.

NOT insane…if you have the help. and also depending on the amount of tables you have. Neat Idea

I think you can do it–but you need to decide if it’s really worth it–for example, weigh the  coolness of it to the stress factor–if you don’t have anything else to do, then go for it!

I have tried 3 times to make the string balls….and they do not turn out nearly as pretty as the picture. But, if you want to try it, I would start with silver/grey yarn instead of white. And then spray paint it again after it dries. Otherwise the white yarn will still show through on the insides 🙂 Good luck!

I’m not crafty either, so I’m not sure about 2.5 hours (like the blog post) but I bet you can get them done in less than 3-4 hours, especially since your friend is helping. You can start tearing out the pages now to save time, good luck!

@SleepingWithNuns: Oh! Embarassed Guess I didn’t read it very closely! Well I’m glad yours turned out better than mine, haha. I was sooo frustrated with that project. And I love the table runner idea!

Could you stuff some silk flower petals inside the string balls under the candle to add some colour? You could then scatter some leftover petals around the table.

 

Maybe tie some colourful ribbon around the string balls, or glue some rhinestones around the outside to reflect the light and make them sparkle.

I love the table runners, but….didn’t you say you wanted color? They’re probably going to fade into the white tablecloths too?

@jo.lee: I was thinking the same thing.

The runner is cool but i dont think it will stand out on the white.

I say do it! I’m thinking about doing the spheres as part of my tablescape. I’ve already tried my hand at them and they came out great. No complaints here. I also tried spraying them silver, but is adds to the drying time because you will have to wait for them to cast over again…the initial amount of drying time takes days for them to really get stiff. That was my experience.
