Tutorial: Glitter Balls

I saw this project when I watched Martha Stewart's Christmas show.  These glitter balls are so expensive to purchase in stores, but they are so cheap and fun to make at home.

These are all of the supplies that are needed.

Make a glue mixture with 2 parts glue to 1 part water. 
Blow up a balloon and take the string and tie a knot UNDER the knot in the balloon.

Spray a little Pam on the balloon so that the string won't stick to the balloon.

Put a little glue on the bottom tip of the balloon to help keep the string in place.

Wrap the string around the balloon and then paint glue over all of the string. 

Hang the balloon up to dry completely for a few hours or overnight. 

Once the string has dried completely, pop the balloon and remove. (this is the fun part) :o)  Sorry about my voice, I've been fighting a cold all week.

Using the glue mixture, lightly paint it over the strings.

Sprinkle glitter all over the string ball and then hang it to dry.

These are so simple and fun to make and can be used to fill up a pretty bowl or to hang on the tree!
