My new addiction is Pinterest and via this latest obsession of mine, I found this awesome "easy" craft that I wanted to do for the wedding.
Sooo cute. Right!??!! And so simple according to the blog that originally posted these sweeties.
Chris and I headed out on a date night to Walmart to buy some decorating supplies. I was so excited to use my new yarn in all of it's glorious colors...
I (literally) wrestled with the balloons for more time than I will confess in a public forum to get them all blown up and ready to coat in yarn. I diluted my glue and jumped right in...
It looked promising... until I lifted the balloon off the towel. The yarn slid right off. I am not a faint-hearted crafter so I tried again... and again, wrapping yarn around itself and trusting that once it dried, all would be well... The picture below is what I found in the morning.
It looks EXACTLY like the original! Right?!?
Turns out the yarn needed to be 100% cotton. Mine wasn't. I'm not in the mood to go buy more yarn... so I'll take a breather and use the yarn for something else. The dream of a crafty bridezilla might be slowly dying.
