The easiest little balls to make.
Just blow up some balloons. Make sure they are the round ones.
Spray on a little oil to stop the string sticking too much.
Then choose your favourite string or twine.
Wind some off the ball and soak it in some wallpaper paste.
You may need to wear gloves.
I actually used celmix which is similar to wall paper paste, it's a non toxic children's paste used in kindergarten.
Tie your string to the knot on the balloon to secure it.
Wind as much or as little string as you like.
The more string, the more dense the ball will be.
Don't worry if you run out of string. I didn't bother joining more I just started with a fresh string and it glued itself in place.
Leave to dry.
This is the hard part. I am very impatient and ended up putting them by the fire to dry faster.
When the string is dry. Cut the knot to free the string. Poke them with a sharp implement to pop the balloon and pull it out.
Pop them in a bowl and admire!
If you do have a go, I would love to hear how you got on.
