We celebrated CJ's 4th Birthday last month and I made an inexpensive balloon garland decoration. It was a great hit! She was just excited and thrilled to see the string of balloons, every child has an obsession for balloons right! We live in a town home sort of an apartment. I hanged the Balloon garlands on the Stair rails and so when CJ woke up birthday morning it was a pleasant surprise and Balloony welcome!
All you need is a packet of Balloon, Yarn bundle/Balloon string
Method 1: Balloon string secured to the rails
First blow up the balloon. Tie the balloon end to a knot.
Leave about 4-5 inches of the yarn on the free end and knot the yarn to the first balloon as shown below
Tie the free end of the yarn to the rails as shown below
Cut the yarn from the yarn bundle to approx. double the length of the rails and now take the free end of the yarn in the gap between the rails and wall. Bring it out as shown above
Attach a Balloon based on how you want it to hang. I attached it as shown below
Continue the same until the entire rail is filled with balloons
Using the same method, I tied few balloons to the balcony rails
Method 2: Balloon Garland
In this Method, I tied the balloons to the yarn as a Balloon garland. Then tied the garland ends to the rails.
I just love the super easy and less expensive balloon garlands. How fun, they transform the home to a festive look in a hour time or may be less then that if you have more hands to help!
