I found some yarn at the thrift store last week. Just $.075. Much to scratchy to make anything I’d want to wear from it. I bought it for the girls to use for misc. craft projects (they can really use up my yarn stash!). Then I saw this globe lamp. They suggested using yarn dipped in fabric stiffener. But I had white glue on hand & thought I’d give it a try!
All you need is some white glue, yarn,& large balloon.
Make sure you have a space you can make a mess. This project is SUPER messy! Blow up the balloon. In a bowl, pour one container of glue.
Using a foam brush cover the balloon with glue mix. It just helps the hold the yarn as you start to wrap it. Now get your yarn ready & began to wrap around the balloon.
Now tie it up some where safe to dry. Mine was dry with in 24 hours, but I gave it an extra day just incase. When it’s dry pop the balloon & remove it from any open space in the yarn.
To use this as a light you’ll need bulb unit. I had one already from IKEA ( super cheap-$6).
Such a fun project & I love that it actually worked out too !!
