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.

Perfect for a film party, and perfect size

I wanted popcorn holders for my daughter's 11th film birthday party. These were very easy to pop open. They were a really good size, big enough for enough popcorn, but not too big, so all was eaten! They went down really well with the kids. Great price, and speedy delivery.

Perfect for a film party, and huge!

I hadn't seen this film balloon before. It was so perfect for my daughter's 11th film birthday party. I blew one up (I didn't use helium) and put the other on our window as a decoration. It was great quality, great price and arrived really quickly.

I was doing a film party for my 11 year old daughter. I wanted a few things that would make a big impact. I bought 2 of these. One I blew up (it said helium was needed, but I just blew it up normally.....I was v light headed afterwards 😂). It was spot on perfect, and the other one I put on the window as a decoration. I was very impressed with the quality, price and speed of arrival. Will def buy from here again.

Beautiful

Excellent service
