Balloon Flower GarlandMaterials:
- Curling ribbon
- Balloon (works best with the extra large balloons)
- Floral garland or silk flowers
- Glue dots
Create a beautiful balloon garland for a wedding, bridal shower, baby shower or as general party decor. The balloon garland also makes a gorgeous photo prop for a photo booth at a first birthday.
Start by removing the faux flowers and leaves from the plastic stems. Trim off any excess plastic stem.
There are two ways you can do this. The first method is to slide the flowers onto the curling ribbon.
The second method is to use glue dots to attach the flowers to the base of the balloon and ribbon string.
I chose to use both methods. I started by sliding one flower up to the base of the balloon using the first method.
Next, I pressed a glue dot to the base of each flower and pressed gently to the base of the balloon as I positioned and attached them.
I then began to attach the flowers down the curling ribbon using glue dots.
The flowers will act as the balloon weight. The over-sized balloons will hold the weight of the flowers the best. But you can also just attach the flowers to the base of a standard balloon.
The balloon garland is super easy to create and turns out just beautiful!
