How to Make a Balloon Garland

Hand making a balloon garland can take some patience. So grab a snack or pop on that Netflix and you will pass the time no problem. When you pick the colors of your garland remember the colors will set the theme. Pick coordinating colors that fit with the rest of your party.

For a fun party pick three or so colors. For a more neutral party you could go with white and gold. Here are the directions.

  1. Blow up your balloons.
  2. Roll out the strong as long as you would like your balloon garland.
  3. Cut a piece of string that is 6 inches.
  4. Attached the balloon starting in the middle by tying the short string onto the long string.
  5. Continue tying mixing sizes such as small and big balloons and different colors. Make sure to alternate.

  • Add fresh or paper floral to a garland by placing pieces throughout the garland.
  • Mix fun shaped balloons in with the balloon garland. These create some texture and can be fun.
  • Add feathers or feathers covered in glitter for a bird themed party or gathering or just to make a bohemian statement.
