Preparing an unusual and beautiful decoration for the Sukkah
- 1 or 2 medium sized balloons
- Elmer’s glue and a plastic cup
- Different colored thread and yarns
- Sewing needle
How to make it
Blow up your balloons to the size you want.
Fill up the cup with 1/3 glue.
Thread the needle with the color of your choice of thread and punch a hole through the cup of the glue with your needle and thread. Pull through and your needle will become saturated with glue. You can do this many times with different colored and textured threads. All of these are wound around the balloon until the area of the balloon cannot be seen because of it being covered in threads. Place the covered balloon for drying until the balloon shrinks and then gently pull the shrunken balloon out of a crevice. Tie a thread at the top of your new lampshade for the Sukkah! Don’t place a candle or light inside because of a fire hazard.
