Balloon Garland Materials

Materials:

  • Ribbon
  • Red carnations

Be sure the balloon is completely filled with helium. The pine needles can get heavy and will weigh down the balloon if it’s not filled completely.

 

Step 2: Create a garland by using the floral tape to attach the carnations to the greenery.

If the pine needle branches aren’t long enough, connect multiple branches together with the floral tape. Then attach a few of the carnations or your favorite red flower.

Be sure the balloon is completely filled with helium so that the flowers don’t weigh it down. The color of the ribbon doesn’t matter because it will be covered with greenery and flowers.

Create a pattern by painting decoupage onto the balloon with a foam brush. If the pattern is large, it’s best to paint it in parts so that the decoupage doesn’t dry. Once you paint on the decoupage, use your fingers to adhere the gold metal flakes to the glue.

 

Step 3: Create a garland by attaching the flowers to the greenery with floral tape.
