    DIY String Chandeliers Jessica of Wednesday Inc shows us how to make those gorgeous twine chandeliers from the inspiration shoot she shared with us this morning. Using balloons, glue and twine, you can also make these lanterns for your wedding – and then bring it home and use it as your very own mid century lampshade. twine yarn ball lanterns What you will need are: balloons, glue, yarn, tray for glue, corn starch 1/2 cup of Corn starch, 1/4 cup of Warm water, clear fast drying spray paint, hanging lamp cord or fishing line (depending on your desired final product), and a lighting kit if you’re looking for a fully functional lantern. Jessica recommends using a sharpie to mark on the inflated balloon how much room you need to leave for the lighting cord. She also recommends coating the balloon with vaseline prior to wrapping the yarn coated with glue so it doesn’t stick on the balloon once it’s dry. You can see all the details on Jessica’s blog. diy twine yarn chandelier Are you getting excited to try to do this at home as much I am? diy twine yarn chandelier glue balloons Instructions: 1. Inflate the balloon to a medium size so the shape is a little rounder. 2. If you’re looking to make a lampshade out of the string chandelier, use a sharpie to mark around the knot on the balloon. 3. Before you start working, we recommend using a tarp.Mix corn starch, glue and warm water together until it has a smooth texture. 5. Smear the vaseline all over your balloon until it is completely coated so th twine wet with glue won’t stick on the balloon after dry. 6. You can start a little assembly line with friends by one of you feeding the yarn through the glue mix and giving to another person to wrap it around the balloon. 7. Start wrapping the balloon vertically, slowly changing to wrapping. For a seamless look, tuck the ends of the twine under one of the wrapped strings. 8. Wait 24 hours until the balloon has completely dried before popping the balloon. 9. Spray the string chandeliers with clear fast drying spray paint et voila!

    DIY String Chandeliers. I like the idea of getting those giant 40" balloons, and making these so they fit over the pendulum lights inside the dining area. Cover them in iridescent glitter, and you're good to go! (Thanks Kassie for the link!)
