WIMW: More Office Decor

This What I Made Wednesday features a project that has been on my Pinterest list for a while now. When I saw these gorgeous yarn eggs, I knew I just had to make some!

Luckily, I had recently scored a big bag of colorful yarn at the thrift store. Chocolate brown, oatmeal and turquoise...oh yeah!

There are a few different tutorials online with variations on the glue and how to wrap the balloons. So after some trial and error, I finally decided on using "Stiffy" fabric stiffening glue. I also found the easiest way to get the yarn on the balloon was to wrap it completely dry, then dip in the glue.

These are really fun but also very messy! I can't wait to string them up in my office!

Have you tried this project yet?
