String Balloons

These are great for gifts and holidays. This is a sticky craft so don’t wear your good clothes.

Here is what you need

  1. Yarn( A lot of it too!)
  2. Glue
  3. Water
  4. Paper cups
  5. Some Candy
  6. Balloon

Now let’s make the craft.

  1. In a Paper Cup add in glue and the same amount of water
  2. Blow up the balloon and tie it shut
  3. Cut some yarn and dip it in the glue mixture
  4. Take the yarn and wrap it around the balloon( you can take different colors of yarn too)
  5. Let the balloon dry
  6. Once the balloon is dry you pop the balloon and remove it from the yarn shell
  7. Place your candy inside the string balloon


This is so simple and is a great way to give a sweet little gift or a valentine. They can also be used a mini pinatas or decorations to hang in your bedroom.

    I think that this looks really cool and i like the picture that you put up. It looks like something that is very interesting. Also i like the way that you got that video and the picture caught my attention. Another thing is that I think many people will want to try this and maybe even think that this may be something that I would look into.

    These DIY’s are so fascinating. I’ve never seen things such as these. I like how you guys think out of the box and how these DIY’s can be used for decorations. Please do more, I love these DIY’s.

    This is really cool, string balloons. I like how it doesn’t any expensive materials and that you use candy. Hopefully, you something else in mind afterward. I would love to see an explosion.

    I really like the idea about making balloons that look like it is just yarn around them. How expensive would all of the minerals cost. Would making balloons for someone else be a good idea because I think that my sister would like to make one for her friends.
