Holiday decor is popping up all around, and if you have spent even five minutes on Pinterest you have seen these Twine Balls. They are adorable and rustic looking and can be found at most home stores. But what if you want to make them?
Luckily, they are super easy to make and we can show you how! So go grab a balloon and your twine and get ready to make the your home look Pinterest perfect!
- 4 oz White glue
- 1/2 cup Cornstarch
- 1/4 cup Water
- Plastic wrap
- Jute twine
After you have blown up a balloon to the size you would like your twine ball to be, then wrap it in plastic wrap.
Tape one end of the twine to the balloon, and start to wrap it around. Go around several times, making sure to go in all different directions securing it at the end.
In a bowl, mix together your glue with the cornstarch and water using a whisk until it is smooth.
Then, using a paintbrush, paint a good layer all over the twine, making sure to coat everything. Let dry.
When its dry, trim the excess twine off and then pierce the balloon.
Pull out the plastic wrap through the openings, then trim off any excess glue that hardened off the twine.
You can add some fairy lights into the twine balls to give them a special glow or even turn them into hanging ornaments with a little hook or ribbon! They look great and will definitely make your house look Pinterest perfect.
