    We made a singular yarn chandelier for one of our inspiration shoots this spring- and LOVED how it turned out. We strung a lightbulb through it, and it illuminated the room brilliantly.


    Super easy & inexpensive for a great effect!

    Use balloons. Blow them up . Use white glue and dip sting into glue. then wrap around balloons. When string is dry. Pop ballons and remove them and any excess glue.
