I decided to put my own little spin on them. Since it will still be daylight outside during my reception I needed something that caught your attention, but didn't make the room look overwhelming. I started out with trial and error. I tried papper mache (the glue and water kind) with strips of paper trying to make something like this.
That I could spray paint white and hang from the ceiling.
Well of course, I failed at first, just making a ball of paper in the end. So my mind switched to something more string like, Yarn! I said. So I tried with yarn, and this time switching to a flour and water mixture. It worked, but did not spray paint well... So I decided to use some old twine I had left over from a few years ago. Eureka! It looked great! It spray painted wonderously and cost me nothing! Now I just need to make a few (thousand) more.
After I make a few more I will post pictures here, and maybe put a little tutorial up for other DIY Brides out there.
