When using yarn to cover a balloon do you soak the yarn in the paste mix thoroughly then wrap around the balloon til the design is made?

Yes! We used to make these all the time when I was a camp craft instructor.

Here is a sample video of making them:

For the little kids we just used regular old Elmer's glue and water. Don't make it runny, just thin it out!

Have fun!

A little white glue watered down just a bit, a paintbrush and some yarn is all you need. Just coat a small area on the balloon with the glue and put the yarn on it.


You should let the different layers dry before adding new ones.

I use a brush to paint the glue on the balloon and then put on the yarn.

Yes, soak first because you want the glue on all sides.
