Emily's String Bowls
I saw these in my August Family Fun magazine and knew I wanted to try them with Emily. This was a fun project for us to work on together.
I used a whole 4 ounce bottle of glue.
Emily and I covered half of a ball with the pieces of yarn.
Emily realized it was more fun to pick the dried glue off of her fingers and I worked on covering the ball. Emily decided to put a piece on every once in a while...I think so she could get more glue on her fingers to pick off!
Our almost finished bowl!! Now we just have to wait for it to dry. The magazine recommends letting it dry over night.
***Ours is still wet. I will post a finished picture as soon as all the glue is dried. I think I may try putting it out in the sun...if the sun decides to shine today :0)
Our yarn bowl is finally dried!!
It actually came out really nice. It just took over 24 hours to dry. I think we will be trying this again one day with some smaller balls.
