There are several DIY balloon arrangements tips and tricks that you can use to make a beautiful arrangement. Some of the techniques professionals turn to frequently include making balloon garlands, adding confetti to balloons, or attaching balloons to a weight. All of these techniques can be used to make a gorgeous balloon bouquet for any occasion!
If you're looking for a quick and inexpensive way to decorate your home for a party or event, you can make or purchase balloon garlands. The process is relatively easy, and there are several different types to choose from whether you create them yourself or work with a professional balloon artist to create them. You can purchase a balloon decorating kit at Diddams Party & Toy Store, or work with an in-house professional balloon artist.
To make a balloon garland, you'll need a large number of balloons. First, you'll need to inflate the balloons. You can use an electric pump or a manual pump. Next, you'll need to tie the balloons together with a wire or pop-up streamers. Once you're done with this step, you can attach the tassels to the middle of the chain.
The quantity of balloons you need will vary depending on the desired length and width of the garland. To get the correct amount of balloons, measure the area you plan to decorate. For example, a 16-foot-long arch can require as many as 100 balloons of different sizes! You can also use a combination of different sizes and colors to create your own unique garland.
You can add confetti to a balloon to create a beautiful centerpiece. Clear balloons work best for adding confetti, and you can use a small applicator that goes into the end of the balloon. When you put the confetti inside, you should spread it evenly around the balloon. If you do not put enough confetti in the balloon, the confetti may not stick to the balloon and can cause a bursting balloon.
Once the confetti is added, the balloon will look great! The more confetti you add, the longer the balloon will remain inflated. You can also add a bit of helium to extend the float time.
If you're going to try to make your own balloon arrangements, you'll need to know how to apply a decal to a balloon. While the process is not difficult, it's important to follow some basic steps! First, you'll need to inflate the balloon to the appropriate size. Once it's inflated, apply the decal to the balloon - there are several different ways to apply a decal to a balloon.
To attach a decal to a balloon, you'll need to purchase the appropriate vinyl for your project. Oracal 651 is highly regarded online for this purpose, and is permanent adhesive. To apply a vinyl sticker to a latex or bubble balloon, you should make sure it's inflated before applying the vinyl. Similarly, if you're making a mylar balloon, you should apply the vinyl after it's already inflated.
You can make your own balloon arrangements by tying them together with pretty ribbons! You can purchase ribbons in a variety of colors and band them together. You can also use fake flowers. However - be sure to choose flowers that have no thorns or other sharp edges!
A weight is another essential item when making balloon decorations. You can use one of two types of weights: permanent or removable. Both can be used with helium balloons. You can also wrap rocks or stones in fabric, or create any other type of non-sharp weighted object to do the trick. The sky is the limit!
