Place your bets now...

Who needs Vegas baby, when you've got DIY projects like this?! I did this yesterday, and now the suspense is killn' me! Once it dries completely [soon hopefully... but I can't rush it which is also killn' me] I'll deflate the ball and find out if all my hard work was worth it [or not].
And let me tell you... it was hard work. I [loosely] followed the instructions from a blog called Pickles. This is how their light turned out. Beautiful.
I've done this project on a much smaller scale before, and it went great. Well, here's what I learned about doing this [very large-scale] project. It's a good project to try if you 1. enjoy stressful situations 2. enjoy getting terribly messy and 3. have a good helper [who's actually excited about helping]. I was 0 for 3 in that list so it wasn't the best project for me [nor was it an enjoyable afternoon!]. Therefore, if this doesn't turn out... oooo I'll be annoyed! And honestly, I'm not so sure it will. Well, I'll know soon enough and I promise to show you a picture of the final project- will it be a beautiful hanging light [or a pile of yarn]? Place your bets now...

  3. I love this idea! I was thinking of making smaller ones for decoration.. Is it easy, does it actually turn out properly? I have just become a new follower and i love what you have done on here so far. I can't wait to see more :)
