Kara used our fresh silver dollar eucalyptus to embellish her blush and white balloon garland. Learn how to make your own balloon garland following Kara’s tutorial below.
1. Inflate the Balloons
Begin to make a balloon garland by inflating the balloons. Then, cut and tie the twine to the length you want the balloon garland to be. Leave one foot extra on each end for hanging later. It’s important that you elevate it off the ground to make it easier to attach the balloons. You may choose to tie the string to door handles or chair backs.
2. Cut 3-inches of Twine
3. Tie Balloons onto the Twine
Start to tie the balloons onto the long piece of twine, tying each one with a double knot. Then, slide them up to the one in front of your balloon garland.
4. Alternate Color and Size
Alternate balloon colors and sizes. There’s no need to follow an exact pattern, and remember to mix in plenty of the smaller balloons. This will keep your balloon garland fun and eye-catching! As you add more balloons, you will just slide them tightly together. Keep adding the balloons, making it full and balanced.
5. Add in Fresh Greenery
Hang the garland and add in sprigs of silver dollar eucalyptus. If hanging the garland on a wall, you can use nails or command hooks. Once you hang you can arrange and adjust the balloons as needed.
