This project is perfect for any occasion – birthdays, baby showers, weddings – you name it. And all you need are some balloons, ribbon, scissors, and a balloon pump (optional). No skills are required! Seriously though, if I can do it – anyone can!
First things first – pick your color scheme. You could go with two colors or a rainbow of hues – whatever floats your boat. (Get it? Floats?) Once you’ve picked your colors and purchased your balloons, blow them up to different sizes for depth and variety.
Now comes the magic part: attaching the balloons to the ribbon. Tie 2 balloons together and then join them with another group of 2 balloons. Start by laying 1 set over the top of the other then twist one balloon over the other to join them then twist the opposite balloon over the opposite direction to complete the connection.
Once you have a few of these groups of 4 put together you can start to stack them. Start by tying your ribbon to the bottom group then place another group of balloons on top at an angle then weave your ribbon over the top of one balloon and then under the next balloon to make a strong connection.
Continue this connection method until you have the size arch you are happy with. The longer it gets it will naturally start to arch over. Once you have the arch completed tye the bottom to something heavy to anchor it down and you are finished.
Not only is this project easy on your wallet but environmentally friendly too since latex balloons are biodegradable materials that won’t harm nature.
So why not give this DIY balloon arch project a try at your next event? It’s cost-effective while dazzling guests with its fun-filled texture and chromatic display – without requiring any significant technical abilities.
Believe me; it’ll be sure to make any special occasion POP!
