Anyway, I wanted to share with you my attempt at these. I am going to make some more but skip the glitter next time. I'll post the tutorial when I make them!
My first attempt:
I actually made them out of jute.. but they can be made with any soft string that can be starched stiff. Also it may be best to use the preferred color of string or twine instead of painting them afterwards. These would have actually been fine if I had left the glitter off and left them natural. They would have made great home decor just lying in a bowl.
I am going to make some again and then I'll post the tutorial with photos.
