I was so intrigued with Ellen's cool "colored glass" I just had to give them a try. She has a great tutorial, so I don't need to add anything here. Although, in my haste to do this project, I picked up the only package of balloons they had at the market, not thinking much that they were marked Water Balloons. Apparently, "water balloons" break way easier than regular balloons so we had a lot of casualties :( Instead of putting ours in the freezer, we hung them in the tree outside so they could freeze over-night.
As I said, casualties significantly reduced our supply.
But the results are truly magical!
Little Brother was carrying around a stash of jellybeans as I was writing this post and I couldn't help but notice the symmetry....
Thanks, Ellen, for the wonderful idea!
