Start blowing up the balloons in the size you want your heart be (less you fill them smaller the heart will be). Tie both of the balloons together using a piece of yarn.

Put the white glue in a shallow recipient and add some water to make it a bit more liquid. Mix it well.  Dip the string on the recipient with glue but be careful to not tangle it. Start wrapping the balloons with the string from its knot-end. While you are wrapping try to hold the balloons on knotted-end giving them the heart shape.

Pass the string randomly on the balloon surface, more you wrap, the denser the heart will be. When you be happy with the cover of it, cut the string and hold the ornament for some minutes until it dry a bit. If you want you can sprinkle some glitter on the heart.

When the yarn is dried, pop up the balloons inside the ornament and remove it carefully through one of the holes.
