DIY Balloon Wreath Decoration - Party Tutorial

by Jo Williams November 08, 2018

 

I love cheerful and fun Christmas party decorations and they don't come much merrier than this cool balloon wreath! Put it on your front door or above your mantle, it will stay looking good for at least a couple of weeks or more.

This balloon wreath is incredibly quick and simple to make; all the materials you need are a length of wire, a few handfuls of balloons and a pump - that is it!

DIY Balloon Wreath

Materials:

-  4ft length of wire - I used 8ft of floral wire and doubled it to make it stronger

- 5" balloons in a mix of colours (approx 40 total)

- Ideally a balloon pump as 5" balloons are hard to inflate by mouth

Balloon Wreath Tutorial

Firstly inflate all of your balloons, it is important to underinflated them to keep them a nice round plump shape like baubles. Inflate them to a variety of sizes between 2" and 3.5".

As you can see I doubled the wire to make the wreath stronger. Tie each balloon directly on to the wire.

Continue to add balloons, tying them to the wire and then pushing them together, continue until all the balloons have been added. Once completed attach the two ends to form a circle by winding them together. If the ends are sharp then cover them with some gaffer tape. Move or manipulate your balloons to ensure all gaps are covered and then shape your wire into a wreath shape.

I've given instructions to make a wreath but using the same technique you can make a table garland, a mini arch or even balloon garland letters or numbers; simply bend the wire into the shape you require.

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.

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
