High Hopes: DIY Balloon Craft Ideas

The one thing that really upsets me about balloons isn't really the fact that they harbor static which means that a simple "brush-by" one of them means that your hair will stand on end and leave you looking like Chucky ( that was a bad reference--but you get the point), but it's the fact that balloons filled with air don't last long.

Really?! Like I had an amazing idea to set up the decorations for my kids birthday party the night before, you know so that the day of the party I could sit on my butt and snack on deviled eggs until the guests arrive. But, I woke up the morning of the party only to find that my blown up balloons ( isn't it odd how the word balloon has two "l's" and two "o's"?) Anyway my balloons looked like saggy post mommy breastfeeding breast. ( I'm on a role with these amazing references in this post people, so please bear with me-- ha!)

Next time I want to be all "super mommy" and decorate the night before, I will most likely make some of these wonderful balloon crafts.

I love these DIY yarn balls, and how lovely they look with the tablescape. The tutorial is here!
