I cut a handful of different strings, (affiliate link) bakers twine and pom pom ribbons.
I mixed a “glue concoction” consisting of 70% mod podge, 20% regular glue and 10% fabric stiffener into a paper cup. Then, I dipped each string into the mixture to fully coat. (note: this is a VERY messy step)
I laid out a sheet of wax paper and did the best I could to lay them out into a heart shape to dry. A few hours into their drying process, I very gingerly flipped them over to dry evenly on the other side.
A few I even wrapped and secured them right to the chandelier base.
