How to Make Fairy Bowls for the Fairy Party

Really cute idea from accenttheparty.com

Here’s what you need: 
Balloons
White glue
Jute
Paint brushes
Green, pink and yellow (or any color)  tissue paper and 
Evergreens and acorn tops.

Directions:
1. Find evergreens and acorn tops outside. Spread them out and dry.
2. Blow up the balloons to the size of bowl you want to make. Cut a length of jute and tie it around the end of the balloon.
3. Cut the green tissue paper into long, thick strips. Cut the other colors into smaller pieces. Take the glue and water it down just a little bit to make it easier to spread. Start by wrapping a few pieces of green around the balloon and gluing them down, mix the other colors in, then start layering the green on to make a bowl around the balloon.
4. Once you get through a few layers, start adding in the evergreens and acorns, wrapping the green tissue paper and glue it down.
5. After you’ve got enough layers, hang the balloon in a window overnight to dry.
6. The next day, take the balloons down and carefully pop the balloon, peeling it out of the bowl. Take the jute off of the top of the balloon.
7. Punch holes in either side of the bowl near the top and string the jute through them.
