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 Advent Calendar

Easy to assemble and look fab. My children were super excited to see these and eager every day to open them up!

Good

Product arrived very quickly and was as expected in terms of size and colour

Gold metalic baloons

Ive bought these a few times. Perfect colour never burst ! Exactly what we need.

I have not used these balloons yet. They have been purchased in advance for a Birthday Party next year. However, delivery was quick, they were packaged great and the quality appears to be very good. I did try to blow up one of them to see how it is but I found it very difficult so I would recommend getting a balloon bump to do this, preferably an electric one.

I haven't used these balloons yet. They have been ordered in advance for a party next year. However, the delivery was quick, packaged very well and they appear to be of good quality. I am very confident that come May 2020 when they will be used, they will be a great success at my party.
