Christmas Balloon Backdrop Tutorial

by Jo Williams November 20, 2018

We have received lots of requests regarding how we put together our Christmas balloon backdrop wall. It was super easy and would look incredible at any Christmassy celebration, here is how we did it!

You will need:

  - Wide Coloured Ribbon

  - Strong Mounting Tape (like this) or a cool glue gun will work too,

  - A selection of foil balloons, we used 23 in total

    We used a combination of the following balloons:  Silver Crescent Moon, Red Candy Swirl Balloons, Pink Candy Swirl Balloon, Silver Rounds, Raspberry Rounds, Teal Rounds, Red Rounds, Silver Hearts, Red Hearts, Red Orbs, Silver Orbs, Silver Cubez, Silver Diamondz, Raspberry Four Point Stars and an Elf On the Shelf Balloon

Creating this balloon display is pretty easy to do but you do need a strong sticky tape or glue gun. This may mark your walls so ideally put this together on a backdrop. 

Step 1: Inflate your balloons, inflate all the balloons ideally with a hand held or electric balloon pump.

Step 2: We used a couple of Cubez Balloons and made them look like presents by tying them with 2" wide ribbon. there is a great tutorial for puff gift bows here.

Step 3: Start to stick the balloons to the wall using your mounting tape, we started with the foil round balloons and the crescent to create the base.

Step 4: Once you have a base layer add on other balloons on top to cover the gaps

Step 5: Pile up the large Cubez and Orbs balloons at the base and even add in some honeycomb balls or small latex balloons if you wish.

See I told you it was easy!

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
