Instructions for making
We take a suitable jar for mixing the adhesive mass, and dilute the PVA in it with water in proportion, for one part of the water there should be three parts of glue.
We inflate a balloon to the desired size of our future product and fasten it.
In the place where the cartridge will be located and winding up the power cord, mark a ball with a pen or felt-tip pen about 70 mm in size on the ball.
Lubricate the entire surface of the ball with petroleum jelly or baby cream, so that the threads do not stick to the ball and all efforts are not in vain.
We take in hand the thread wound on a bobbin and coat it with an adhesive mass.
We take our ball in one hand, the threads in the other, and proceed to winding the thread on the ball without taking the marked area for the cartridge. In this case, it is desirable to monitor the uniformity of winding, the more uniformly the winding will be performed, the more elegant the product will look.
Wound up, untie the ball and inflate it slightly. This is done with the aim of better coupling the threads together.
Now that the winding is complete and the ball is pumped, it is necessary to glue it in several layers.
Glue must be given time to dry, then leave our billet for about 8 hours, and preferably at night until complete drying.
We lower the ball and extract it through the hole left of our finished design.
In order to give shine to the fabricated ceiling, the sphere is varnished and left to dry.
On this, the manufacture of a chandelier from threads can be considered complete, it only remains to assemble it and hang it in the room. Note! How to update the table with your own hands - instruction and master class for beginners (80 photos)

Only as a ball, it is necessary to use a pattern made of cardboard or another suitable in shape and size of the object on which the thread will be wound later.
