Small, Round Balloon
Potpourri with Large Pieces
Lace for Trim
Hot Glue Gun
Blow up the balloon to about 3". Cover your surface with newspaper and hang the balloon above it.
Pour a cup of Liquid Starch into a disposable bowl.
Cut yarn into 1 yard pieces. Dip into starch and wrap around balloon. Continue until you have the balloon evenly covered with yarn. You will have spaces with the balloon showing through but make sure they are small enough that big pieces of potpourri will not fall out.
Let dry overnight.
Pop balloon and pull it out.
Snip a few strands of yarn near the top of the ball. Push potpourri through the opening. Use glue gun to close strands.
Decorate with lace and make a hanger out of cord.
