- A large bouncing ball
The size of the ball depends on how big you want your lantern to be. Try a few different sizes!
Step 2. Prepare The Glue Mixture
Mix an equal amount of glue with the amount of water, then blend them together.
Step 3. Wrap The Yarn
Soak your hemp cord/yarn to your glue mixture and start wrapping the ball with it. Carefully hold the first roll of the yard into place as you continue to wrap your ball.
Step 4. Remove The Ball
Let it dry for two days. As it dries, the original color will be retained. Deflate the ball and slowly pull the yard away.
Step 5. Assemble The Wire Lamp

You may want to ask help from someone who knows how to assemble the light. But you can do it on your own if you’re confident enough.
