With only a week between Christmas and the new year, there isn’t much time left to decorate for a New Year’s Eve bash. No worries, because I’ve got a project that’s quick and easy and is sure to add some pizazz to your party.
16″ Dowel (painted to match your color scheme)
Marbles, Shreds, or other Filler for the Vase
Foil Sheets (optional)
Star Sprays (optional)
Repeat with a third group, there should now be six balloons in this cluster. Do the same with remaining groups, so you end up with two big clusters (each with 6 balloons).
Now, put the two clusters together and twist the necks of a couple balloons around each other. You will end up with a ball that looks like this. You can move the balloons around until the colors and shape look good. I hope that all made sense (it’s way easier than it sounds).
Set that aside for a bit and let’s start on the base. Stick your dowel into a piece of styrofoam and place it in the bottom of your vase. You may need to glue it down to keep it from tipping. Add marbles or other decorative items to fill the vase.
