Inflate a balloon into an egg shape and begin to wrap the glue covered thread around it, criss-crossing the surface well, using your fingers to pull off any excess glue.
Once the balloon is covered in thread, allow it to dry overnight.
Using scissors, carefully pierce the balloon and remove any bits of balloon that may be sticking to the string.
