So my sister found this really awesome link about these sphere-shaped lights made of string, and a DIY for making them. So we’re in the process of trying to make them ourselves for the wedding. I want to use them for centerpieces for the tables at the wedding. We’ve started with ivory, light pink, and black yarns. Here’s our progress so far.

“Stiffy” fabric stiffener, from Joann Fabrics, $5.99 a bottle.

Use those cheap sponge brushes to apply the stiffener, after yarn is wrapped around a balloon.

Slightly different sizes for variation

I put pushpins into the knot in the balloon and hung them from the ceiling to dry evenly.

A finished one with the balloon popped and taken out.

I’m really excited about these turning out. I think they’ll be beautiful and match the feel of the wedding perfectly.
