You could wrap large styrofoam balls, or balls made with newspaper, aluminum foil or whatever with the twine. Then brush on clear non-sheen marine paint to seal the twine for longevity. Apply 2-3 coats and the balls should last for many years.
We used to make these when we were kids. We used a balloon for the form, and wrapped string that was soaked in Elmer's glue around it. Once the glue dried, we would pop the balloon, pull it out, and you had a beautiful decoration. We used whatever twine or yarn we had and it was a lot of fun.
Hi Molly. Make a mixture of equal parts of white glue and water. Next blow up a balloon. Run your twine thru the glue mixture and wrap it around the balloon. Leave them to dry overnight. Next morning, pop the balloon and that leaves you with a twine ball. If you intend to put lights in them, remember to leave a small space when you put the twine on. Good luck Molly.
There is an outdoor mod podge you could try using as glue that may work good for the outside.
Modge podge after you make the balls then cover them in the modge podge
I know I’m late to the party but for future, Exterior pva glue would work…thin it out with water, cover the balloon, wrap a few times, let dry to tacky…repaint and repeat til you’re satisfied then let dry completely before popping xx
Use outdoor Mod Podge as your glue and/or spray them with an outdoor sealer.
Mod Podge makes and outdoor product. I would use that. For extra protection you could spray it with a weatherproof poly.
