Fringe Tassel Tail Balloons

by Jo Williams March 03, 2014

You may remember last year I posted a D.I.Y how to make tassel tails for big balloons. Well I thought I would share with you a little balloon-tail cheat. 

Tassel tails, (although they look amazing) are quite time consuming to construct, a very quick cheat to achieve a similar effect is to add fringe garland tails to your balloons. 

Trust me kids love these, so for a cheap but 'jaw-dropping-wow' feature to a child's party add fringe tassel tails to your balloons, these are also beautiful for weddings and can be achieved in practically no time and at very little cost. They also make a beautiful little gift for a birthday, baby shower etc.

Fringe Festooning comes in 5m lengths (more than enough for 5 balloons if you use just one strand), combine a couple of colours and strands for best effect. Simply attach the garlands to the tied base of the balloon with a little piece of glitter tape. These garlands are stronger than you might think but if you are using with Big Balloons which have a strong pull when full of helium, tie a piece of strong ribbon before adding the garlands and use the ribbon as the length to be held/tethered.

Our Fringe Garland comes in eleven gorgeous shades, have fun creating your own balloon-tails.

Birthday party

my order arrived on time, the balloon were sensational!
Will come back!

They look very elegant

Time

These don't come assembled so allow yourself enough time for folding the foil into strips and attaching with bands. Looked lovely on the fireplace (not lit!)

Order enough

This only filled 2 numbers and two 16in orbs so definitely order more than you need and note it gets expensive!!! Do a design that allows you to use air and hang upside down and save helium for where you really need it.

Just what I needed

Guess what- it was perfect for a hen party! Top quality.
