Balloons are a festive and inexpensive way to decorate for a celebration. You can choose from a variety of color and sizes . . . the only drawback is having to blow up a large number of them. (Or you can ask your husband when it is for one of his sweet kid’s birthdays.)
For Dan’s birthday this year, I decided to make a balloon banner. We already had a lot of blown up balloons from my son’s birthday two days prior and I’ve been wanting to try this technique since I saw it on Design Mom. Although because it was for Dan’s birthday, I had to blow up the rest of the balloons myself. Good thing I used to play trumpet. Although I’ve lost some of that air since high school . . . or have I?
The technique is simple and makes assembling the fullness of your bunting so easy. Thread a needle through the mouths of the inflated balloons. Then slide the balloons along the thread to make the banner as full as you’d like.
After Dan’s birthday, I had some fun seeing where else I could put the balloon bunting.
My conclusions: This is a great way to create balloon bunting. I would love to make two of them and get some great pictures of the kids running with them in a dreamy field. And one more thing, I really need to paint my foyer! It looks so plain in the top photo.
Have a great day!
