Wrapped in Yarn

Loving those colorful balls of yarn? If you're ready to get a little sticky, these are simple and chic! First, blow up a balloon to the desired ornament size. Then using a small bowl of glue, dunk roughly 5-8 yards of yarn into the glue. After wiping a small amount of glue onto the balloon, wrap the yarn around the balloon in every direction. Leave a tail and hang to dry. Once it's dry, deflate the balloon slowly with a thin stick. Hang and enjoy your fun pop of color!
