Yarn around balloons Elmers glue! Could make these with a small opening in the top, and use as "vases" for the centerpieces, filled with a few fake flowers! Quick, inexpensive and easy!! Could even do this as a craft with the mommies.
Mix 120 ml glue, 120 ml cornstarch, and 60 ml cup warm water in a large container until all lumps are gone, then cover each balloon in vaseline. Dip twine or hemp into mixture and wrap around balloon. Leave on for 24 hrs to dry, pop balloon and apply clear fast drying spray paint on hardened hemp.
