Balloon Cupcake Topper DIY Tutorial

by Jo Williams September 12, 2015

Original and fun cupcake toppers are all the rage at the moment! We love to use our bright tiny balloons as cupcake toppers as they are fun, jolly and can be co-ordinated with any party. These little decorations pack a punch at a party for a tiny price!

To make these little balloon cake toppers all you will need is:

  • 5" balloons
  • Toothpicks or wooden skewers
  • Ribbon if you choose to add it

Step 1: Snip the ends off your wooden toothpicks

Step 2: Blow up your balloon. Do not inflate fully as this will be too big, inflate to the size you want and knot the balloon as close to the inflate part as possible to give it a nice shape, leaving a large end bit.

Step 3: Insert the sharp end of your stick downwards in and through the balloons knot

Step 4: Push the stick through the knot but not all the way! Leave the un-sharp end sitting snugly at the base of the inflated balloon.

Step 5: This should now be fine to use as a topper but if it is a little wobbly or does not stand up then tie it tightly with a piece of ribbon or add a touch of washi tape.

Excellent!

We ordered a bespoke balloon arch kit for our wedding ceremony and it was perfect! Easy to use and put together and fantastic quality. I will certainly be ordering with you again in the future.

Just what I was looking for!!

These acrylic pyramids come apart so you can fill them. I put silver, black and gold beads in mine. A bit tricky to place them together, but after a few tries I figured out a way. They are too light and I have doubts that it will stay in place using 4 regular size balloons. So I added a large washer inside for added weight. These turned out beautiful. A great addition to my table decorations.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are so glad that you loved these unusual weights, thank you for the idea to add a washer for weight - great tip! Your review is very much appreciated, every review helps us significantly in evaluating and tweaking our products and service. We hope that you enjoy a wonderful celebration. Best regards, Jo

Really lovely quality & came in a lovely box. Arrived within 2 days of purchasing them.

Excellent!

Wonderful balloon arch kit! An excellent range of really good quality balloons! The balloon arch kit lets you mix colours in both the larger and smaller sizes, which was perfect in creating a green and grey balloon arch for a baby shower. The instructions provided with the kit were very helpful especially given that I had never made a balloon arch before! This was exactly what I needed for the event, 100% would recommend!

Lovely balloon for 1st birthday

Bought this balloon for my daughter's 1st birthday and couldn't be happier. It's absolutely gorgeous and still floating over a week later. Very pleased with my purchase.
