This is the third post in the DIY Christmas series. These glitter rope bulbs are very easy for kids of 6+ to make.

You will need:

  • Rope
  • Glitter
  • Ribbon
  • Balloons

Step 1

Squirt some craft glue in a bowl and soak a sting of rope in it.

Step 2DIY Christmas, Glitter Rope bulbs

Blow up a balloon (Ideally to a small round shape but some balloons like the one above just wont stay round) and drape the wet glue rope a few times around it.

Step 3

Sprinkle with glitter while the glue is still wet, tie a small piece of rope around the knot and hang it on a washing line to dry. If you are hanging it in the sun, make sure to check it half hourly as the balloons will deflate in the sun and dry in an oval shape instead of round.

Step 4

Once dry, loosen the rope from the balloon by carefully pulling on the string. A knife may help with an adult present. Pull the balloon out of the top opening.

Step 5
