DIY SNEAK PEAK! - Stiffened Yarn Balls!

I just LOVE doing sneak peaks, lol.

I started a new project just this past weekend. It's a little more difficult that I had anticipated at first, but now I have a system and it's going smoothly.

Anyways, it's stiffened yarn balls (LOL! Get your mind out of the gutter!). It involves blowing up ballons, rubbing them with vaseline (YUCK!!) and wrapping yarn around them. Then you put on some fabric stiffener (which I was doing with a paint brush, but my new way of doing it is soaking the string in the fabric stiffeners and then wrap it around the ballon.)

I know you all are just dying to see how it turns out, so be sure to check back for the outcome and instructions!!

Here is the inspiration picture for this project (thank you, weddingbee!)



  1. Gah! I fell in love with that inspiration pic when Miss Argyle posted it on Weddingbee! I can't wait to see how yours turn out!

  2. I love this! Ive actually been considering these as decor for our cocktail hour. Look forward to seeing how your turn out!
