Making a Snowball Ornament
First take some of the glue and add to a bowl, add a enough water to make it easy to paint with.
Blow up balloon to the size of an ornament, take the string and tie under the knot of the balloon. Place a dab of glue on the other end of the balloon to hold the string in place.
Start wrapping the string around the ball in every direction, after there is enough string cut the end and stick to the glue at the one end of the balloon.
Next, take a small paint brush and dip in the glue mixture and paint over the string till all is covered. Hang the balloon with the clothes pin to dry for at least two hours or use a hair dryer to dry faster. You can make a line to hang the ornaments from by using something to tye the string from one point to the other.
After the string is dried take the pin and pop the balloon, use tweezers to pick the broken pieces out of the string ball.
Put a dab of glue on one end and paste the metallic ornament string to one end.
Take the paint brush, dip in the glue and paint onto the string ball. Roll or shake glitter all over the string ball. Let dry, now your ornament is ready to hang.
