Today’s project was something that I have been wanting to try all month. This string light fixture took me a couple days to actually complete, with drying time, but it was well worth it.
I used a tutorial from Pickles. Like most of the tutorials I found online, it used a basic cotton yarn, but I wanted something a little more “natural”, so I went with a legnth of Jute. I also bought a package of “punch balloons” at the dollar store instead of trying to find the giant balloons it called for. The punch balloon ended up working quite well.
Something to make sure of, is to determine wether your wallpaper paste is toxic or not, because you don’t want to do this project around kids or pets if it is toxic. I had to lock my cat up in her box, which she didn’t like, but at least she didn’t eat the paste.
I ending up hanging my sphere with some ribbon, and using a hanging mason jar to hold a light with mine, but you could certianly put a real light bulb in it.
