You’ve surely seen lots of tutorials for yarn balls on Pinterest, like this one from Honest To Nod, and you’ve probably also seen plenty of failed attempts to make them. We’ve even showed you a hilarious video explaining exactly how making string balls goes terribly wrong, which you should watch because you have no idea how long I had to stand in the shower during the filming of that thing.
Still, the potential for a kid-friendly, easy craft is irresistible temptation for many people, including CraftFail reader Laura, who says:
My four-year-old son and I saw an amazing piece of art that had been created by dipping yarn in Elmers glue and wrapping it around a blown up balloon. We were supposed to let it dry overnight, then in the morning be able to pop the balloon and be left with a delicate orbit made out of string to hang as a decoration. Well? Here’s our version!
Nothing like a craft project to deflate your hopes—and your ego.
