A DIYs don't have to be for weddings. They can also be for a nice backyard party or they can be great patio decor for this upcoming summertime. first, we're making really easy twine balls and I'm just taking this blown up balloon and manipulating it. So that it looks more like a circle, I'm also taking some white glue, mixing it with a little bit of water and then we're going to take some jute twine and we're just going to wrap this around that balloon all the way around, so that there is a very little gap, which is super essential, especially if you wanted to put an LED candle inside and then we're just taking our glue, we're going to Pat it around all the way to every single space that we have that jute twine.
Then we're going to hang it for about 24 hours once it's dried, you want to take that balloon out and basically, you're just going to pop this, and you can take out any excess dry glue. That's around the twine. I bought these fairy lights for my grandparents anniversary and they are so useful because I've reused them all the time. They're super cheap and I'll put the link down below where you can get them, they're also battery-operated, which is extremely useful, and this is how these beautiful balls turned out. You can even spray paint them white and I think they'll look super romantic in any of your reception venue for some cheap lighting ideas.
I got this LED lantern from the dollar tree and it's battery-operated, which comes with the batteries included already, which is amazing. I also found this adorable glass jar from the dollar tree and it comes to the twine already, which adds that really rustic feel and rustic touch to it. This lantern is from Dollarama, and this was three dollars and fifty cents I believe, but there are so many different lanterns out there for cheap now that you can definitely find them anywhere. So using any of those items that you just say we're just going to take bunch of greenery and flowers and fake flowers, if you want, and taking these twist ties, which are also from dollar tree, adding these greenery to this lantern just makes it a little bit More romantic and more wedding appropriate, which definitely sets the mood you can make this as full, as you want to take off any excess stems that you'll see that are peeking out.
These LED pillar candles from the dollar tree are perfect for this project because you don't have to worry about monitoring a real flame candle, especially if they're going to be turned on for a really long time. These beautiful lanterns can light up the aisle or they can be a great centerpiece for your table, but I'm going to be using them to hang on the tree and I'm using this jute twine that I got from the dollar tree to hold this thing up, because It is very strong - and I know that it's not going to break on me due to three or four secured knots, just so that it's completely secured onto your trees, and these look absolutely phenomenal, especially when you turn them on at nighttime. I even took our fairy lights that we use from before, and I hung it up on the tree to add that extra romantic and whimsical touch
