Children's Crafts - How to make String Balloons

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

String Balloons craft project from www.walkaboutcrafts.comYou will need

Cotton string or wool (not nylon)
round balloon
Powder Starch
Wooden Spoon

1. Make up a starch mixture, using 2 or 3 times the recommended amount of starch as recommended on the packet, so that you have a very strong starch mixture. Leave to cool.

2. Blow up the balloon and tie a double knot in the end. Then tie a bit of string around the end. This is so you can hang up the balloon to dry later.

3. Cut the string into pieces about 3 ft long. Soak a piece in the starch for a few moments then wrap it round the balloon. Use a blob of starch to stick the ends.

4. Carry on wrapping bits of starchy string around the balloon at all angles until it is well covered.

5. Hang up the balloon to dry overnight with the bucket underneath to catch any drips.

6. When the pieces of string are stiff and dry, use the pin to pop the balloon.
