How to create an arch of balloons for any event!

What seems like it was a few decades ago, I created an edgy balloon garland to decorate my daughter’s first birthday celebration. It was simple as well–I used twine and balloons! This is the traditional method, but you could still utilize this method if you want to avoid purchasing any special equipment.

However, years later, some valuable products out there allow you to design professional balloon arches without the tying and cutting of string the twine method I used. You can even get pre-made kits!

I bought the balloons from this store to make the garland above. I was awed by the striking metallic and marble balloons that remained pretty opaque when I blew them out.

Create or find wire bases.

Make use of the wire cutters that you can use to slice a length of wire that is sturdy to the length and height that you wish the arch to reach. You can also buy the balloon arch kit at the shop and then use the frame made of wire from there.

Since wire becomes flimsier as you cut it for more extended periods, this technique is ideal for making smaller arches.

Secure the arch.

The end of your arch is in an empty bucket filled with pebbles, gravel, or sand. If you purchased an arch made by the retailer, it could come with a flat base or platform. In this instance, put something heavier, such as a cinderblock or brick, on the bottom of the arch to weigh it down.

Apply a thin layer of colored pebbles or sand to your bucket. This will disguise the plain pebbles or sand.

Cover cinderblocks or bricks with papers that match the balloons you are using. You can also paint them to make them look like the base of the balloon arch.

Four balloons can be blown up using the balloon pump.

They are all identical in color or different colors. The tail end of each balloon forms an untie after you have finished inflating the balloon. Make sure to make each balloon identical in size. [1]

You can use a standard pump for this technique but not a Helium tank.

It is not necessary to utilize a balloon pump for this. However, your lungs might become tired after a few minutes.

Sketch your design and collect your materials.

The design doesn’t have to be complex. A clear idea of the general shape you’d like your arch to have will assist you in assembling it.

Pro Advice: Your arch does not necessarily have to be in a traditional arch. Enjoy creating your unique design, like an empty arched or garland that runs up the wall.
