Light Fantastic!

Ok, for the Pinterest challenge this month, I decided to have a go at another doily inspired make on my pinterest board. I really love how this light looked in this tutorial, so decided to have a go.

I first of all bought some punch ball balloons from ebay and some doilies. I then covered the balloon in vaseline and soaked the doilies in wallpaper paste, before putting them on. I then hung them up to dry like this:

Actually I must confess..... I got a bit impatient and ....I don't know what I was thinking of...... tried to use a hairdryer to dry the doilies. Doh. What a surprise the balloon burst. Oh well, did one again and very pleased with the result.

They are now both on my landing casting lovely patterns. Even the other half likes them, so they must be good!
