I love it when bloggers are REAL!  You KNOW that not ALL projects go according to plan!  Sometimes, it just makes you feel better to know that all of these crafty people in blog land are not perfect.  So I am going to share my recent Project Gone WRONG.

My vision:


I found this awesome tutorial on Pinterest!  Jessica @ Wednesday Custom Designs created these awesome string balls!  I have found tons of tutorials, but this one is very detailed!

Umm…My string balls:


and this one….


I just knew these were going to be awesome!  I was going to hang these cute little babies in my classroom…umm NOT! 

Well, this is what happened:

1.) It is too hot outside and my balloons started shrinking up.  So that resulted in the wet yarn shrinking as well.

2.) I should have rubbed Vaseline on the balloon so the yarn would not stick to the balloon.  Umm…yea..I kind of missed that little detail!

Oh well…you nail some and then you totally MESS some projects up!  I still really want some of these to hang in my classroom, so I will probably try this again soon!  I will let you know how it goes the 2nd time around!

Thanks for reading the good and the bad!
