This craft is pretty easy and the end result is awesome, i'm a knitter so I have a lot of yarn. I personally did this craft and the chandeliers are super light, you can just tape them to the ceiling!

Materials:
– Yarn
– School Glue
– Corn Starch
– Vaseline
– Dowel rod/pole for hanging
– Scissors
– Balloons
– Bowl for Mixing

1. Blow up balloon (try to get different sizes of balloons, I tried to blow up the balloons about half way to they can be round)

2. Assemble work space. Place a long pole or dowel rod between two chairs to hand the balloons to dry. Put a big plastic trash bag underneath so the glue drips don't get anywhere their not suppose to!

3.Attach balloons to rod. Tie yarn around the stem of the balloon and hang from the rod. Be sure that the balloon is suspended and not touching the other balloons.

4.Cover each balloon in a light coating of petroleum jelly. This ensures that the yarn will not stick to the balloon once it is dried and popped.

5. Mix the school glue (about half of the bottle) with approx. 1/2 cup of cornstarch and approx. 1/4 cup of water. Experiment as necessary!

6.Dip the yarn into the glue mixture, squeeze out excess, and begin wrapping around the balloon vertically and then switch to horizontally. Once you have covered a good part of your balloon, cut the yarn and tie back at the top.

7.Allow yarn chandeliers to hang for 24 hours in a dry, covered area. Make sure they are completely dry!

8.Next, pop the balloon (scary I know!). (The yarn will have some dried glue attached but just tap them a bit and most of it should come off)

9. Now you can hand them!! You can either use some good tape or thumb tacks

I hope you love this as much as I did!
