The faithful flower jar has seen it’s fair share of use at weddings these days. There are many ways to dress them up and make them more decorative, but at Rainy Sunday we wanted to come up with something with little bit more impact. Here’s a budget friendly idea that delivers on the wow factor. Here’s to up-styling your wedding decor on a budget!
Armed with jars, string, PVA glue and some balloons we’ve created these String Ball Vases. Very easy and a little clever we think.
Here’s how to make them.
- Blow up the balloons so they are the same height as your chosen jars.
- Cut off lengths of string to cover in PVA glue, and wrap around the balloon. We’ve used a heavy duty jute string because it gives more support and you don’t need to use as much.
3, Wrap as much PVA covered string around the balloons as you want for your desired effect. We did ours with about three sections of string. This makes it easier than one long pieces of string which is pretty messy when covered in PVA glue.
4. Let it dry for 24 hours then pop the balloon. Cut out the top of your string ball to make room to slip in your jar. We’ve used our Rainy Sunday Flower jars, but you can use any jar you like.
As wedding stylists we’re always trying to come up with new ideas that don’t cost the earth for our brides. These String Ball Vases are so easy to make and look great with the rambling floral trend that is popular at the moment. You could even spray paint them to tie in with your wedding colour palette.
