To make such a beautiful decoration, you must prepare:

  • petrolatum;
  • inflatable balls, small in volume, whose diameter is not more than 15 cm;
  • a thick thread that will serve as the base;
  • long and thick needle with a huge eye;
  • PVA glue.

  • First, we inflate a balloon. So that the tail is not untied and does not spoil the composition, it is necessary to tie it in a knot.
  • The next thing we need to do is to smear a petroleum jelly ball. We will need this after the end of the product manufacturing procedure in order to separate the rubber ball from the thread one without any special consequences.
  • Make a through hole in the glue bottle. Its diameter may be slightly larger than the diameter of the thread used to make the ball. You can make one hole bigger, the other smaller, so that the glue that settles on the thread does not remain in the jar. The best option would be to make an outlet near the bottom, so that as the bottle is emptied you don’t have to make other holes.
  • Pass through the holes in the bottle with glue thread with a large needle. Starting with a thread with glue to wrap a ball. We try to keep the threads as close as possible to each other.

Now our filament ball is almost ready. We will only have to remove the burst ball through a small hole. With the help of such smooth and neat balls you can make unique Christmas decorations.
