This month’s project is rustic jute orbs! At least it’s different!
FYI, Darby Smart does not include instructions in their boxes. Instead, they provide a code you can use on their website to look up the instructions. Just a note in case you have a preference, but I guess you could always print out the instructions.
These are the materials that were included for the project. Usually, the things you have to supply yourself are things most people definitely have. I didn’t need to supply anything additional from home this time except scissors.
Here are my completed orbs in action! I’m glad I took this picture because they were very fragile and didn’t last too long after this. Basically, I cut some lengths of jute and soaked them in wood glue. Then I blew up two balloons to my desired orb size. Then I wound the jute around the balloon and let it dry for eight hours. Then I popped the balloons. Popping the balloons kind of made the jute orbs collapse so I had to just sort of manipulate them back out to their original round shape. Then I had to take a nail file to all the excess wood glue. The last step was winding the LED strands through the orbs. I think they turned out really nice!
Verdict: Darby Smart To DIY For Box is one of my favorite subscription boxes! This month’s project was not really my style in terms of home decor, but I think these would make amazing decorations for a party, and they were really easy to make. Fun!
