Blow up balloons to 3-4" diameter, tie ends in knots. If using white glue, mix with equal amount of water in small bowl. Gently pull ribbon or lace through glue mixture or fabric stiffener. Wrap ribbon randomly around balloon, leaving open spaces to form lace effect. Let dry 2-3 hours.
Puncture balloon, gently peel and pull it from the ribbon through the open spaces. For hanging, attach loop of ribbon to one end.
Cover table surfaces and floor with newspaper or old vinyl tablecloth or shower curtain liner for easier cleanup. Keep balloons SMALL for good tree ornaments. My troop had a great time with this when they were 5th grade Juniors (US: 9-11 years).
